Gritty sensation on catheter: a new clinical sign for self-diagnosis of stone formation in the continent urinary pouch.
Goel A., Goel A., Dalela D., Sankhwar SN.
With more experience and better management, the incidence of complications like stone formation after continent urinary diversion is uncommon today. We report a case of large stone bulk in a patient who underwent this surgery 10 years back and who suggested the formation of stones in the pouch herself by sounding them. Proper counseling, regular pouch irrigation and follow-up are essential in any kind of diversion.
