Show Abstract · Added September 16, 2019
Radical cystectomy remains the gold standard treatment for organ-confined high-grade recurrent or muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Orthotopic neobladder urinary diversion following cystectomy represents an option for patients wishing for continent urinary diversion. Female patients who undergo radical cystectomy with orthotopic bladder substitution are at risk for developing both common and neobladder-specific disorders of the pelvic floor, including urinary incontinence, hypercontinence, vaginal prolapse, and neobladder-vaginal fistula. Each of these sequelae can have significant impact on the patient's quality of life. Due to the increased frequency of orthotopic neobladder creation in women, subspecialty urologists are more likely to confront such pelvic floor disorders in bladder cancer survivors. This review presents the most current information on the treatment of pelvic floor disorders after orthotopic bladder substitution.
