Cystectomie radicale et dérivation urinaire : assistance au choix du patient

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2008, vol. 4, no. 182, p. 2614-7
Abstract The patient who undergoes radical cystectomy requires a urinary diversion which will significantly impact on his everyday life. He will have to choose with his surgeon between three different types of diversions that enable urine to flow out of his body adequately. Hence, preoperative information is of paramount importance. The team providing it needs an iconographic support, unfortunately not readily available. In order to clearly explain to the patient the various types of diversions that he may benefit from, their everyday care and to have him/her share the experiences of previous patients, we have elaborated a multi-disciplinary information sequence associated with the creation of video support.
