Urinary diversion is often indicated after radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. It can either be non-continent or continent. Ileal conduit and orthotopic urinary diversions (neobladder) are by far the most commonly used diversions. The choice of the urinary diversion to be carried out is done on several levels in relation to the underlying disease, the state of the patient and the surgeon preference. It is inappropriate to make direct comparisons between enterocystoplasty and ileal conduit because of the differences in the choice of patients for each technique making a prospective randomized trial unlikely.

The choice of the technique must be made after clearly informing and explaining explaining to the patient to enable him accept and adapt to his urinary diversion.
