During a period of eleven years, ureterocutaneostomy (UCST) as a permanent urinary diversion was performed in 44 highly selected patients. Postoperative complications, in particular stenoses or strictures, can be avoided if subtle operative techniques are applied. Ureterocutaneostomy, which is functionally similar to an incontinent ileal conduit, turns out reasonable especially as a palliative procedure in patients with unresectable pelvic mass, dilated ureter, or solitary kidney. Thus, the authors conclude that UCST as a permanent urinary diversion still has to be considered valuable in a highly selected group of patients.
