Keywords:radical cystectomy, urinary diversion
Objective: Compare quality of life (QOL) in Patients with continent and incontinent urinary diversion. After radical cystectomy or non-used native bladder from any disease.
Method: Sixty patients who had urinary diversion were interviewed by Physicians. Using SF-36 and FACT-G for assess quality of life in the patient who had operated at least one year in our institution.
Result: Four categories (physical, social/familial, emotional and functional well being) in FACT-G were equally favorable in these groups. Two categories (physical and mental) in SF-36 had no any differrent quality of life in both group of urinary diversions.
Conclusion: No significant difference in QOL between incontinent and continent urinary diversion after surgery at least one years. The patients can adapt their life style for selected type of urinary diversion. The type of urinary diversion can depend on the indications, condition of the patient and experience of surgeons.
