Abstract

Augmentation cystoplasty is performed for a variety of conditions associated with reduced compliance or detrusor hyperreflexia-instability. Traditional methods use components of the alimentary tract as a vascularized graft, but there is considerable operative morbidity and a risk of significant late sequelae. Autoaugmentation by open or laparoscopic surgery has produced highly variable results, and systematic clinical trials will be required to optimize the technique and patient selection.
