Urinary diversion is any one of several surgical procedures to reroute urine flow from its normal pathway. It may be necessary for diseased or defective ureters, bladder or urethra, either temporarily or permanently. Some diversions result in a stoma.



Complications include incisional hernia, neobladder-intestinal and neobladder-cutaneous fistulas, neobladder rupture and mucous formation.
