AIM:The aim of this study is to define which children could benefit from a button cystostomy. We describe a safe way to perform the insertion of a button cystostomy for urinary diversion and provide more precise instructions concerning the best indications for this device. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed several criteria of the follow-up of all the patients who had a button cystostomy since 2007 including indications, age, urodynamic variables, and complications. RESULTS: Twenty-one patients underwent a button cystostomy. A group of young children was included in the study (mean age, 2 years), in which most of the failed procedures were observed, whereas we had better results with the second group of older children (mean age, 12 years). CONCLUSIONS: The analysis of indications and, more particularly, urodynamic variables regarding the quality of the results allows us to clearly define which children can benefit from this procedure with a good chance of success and low risk of complications.

Abstract

AIM:The aim of this study is to define which children could benefit from a button cystostomy. We describe a safe way to perform the insertion of a button cystostomy for urinary diversion and provide more precise instructions concerning the best indications for this device. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed several criteria of the follow-up of all the patients who had a button cystostomy since 2007 including indications, age, urodynamic variables, and complications. RESULTS: Twenty-one patients underwent a button cystostomy. A group of young children was included in the study (mean age, 2 years), in which most of the failed procedures were observed, whereas we had better results with the second group of older children (mean age, 12 years). CONCLUSIONS: The analysis of indications and, more particularly, urodynamic variables regarding the quality of the results allows us to clearly define which children can benefit from this procedure with a good chance of success and low risk of complications.
