Abstract

The contracted bladder has a high intravesical pressure, noncompliant, small-capacity bladder. The goal of augmentation cystoplasty is the preserving of renal function at low pressure during storage, and effective voiding without residual urine. Even though, there is some controversy, the vesicoureteral reflux with contracted bladder influence on renal function. Herein, we report a case of contracted bladder with unilateral functioning kidney and vesicoureteral reflux, which was treated with augmentation cystoplasty with ileocolic pouch (Le bag).
