To define the nature and risk of complications associated with Kock pouch urinary diversion after high dose radiation (more than 4,500 rad), we analyzed the clinical course of 44 irradiated patients and a comparable group of 42 selected retrospectively from the nonirradiated patient cohort. Of the 42 patients in the irradiated group 18 had received 4,500 to 5,700 rad and 24 had received 6,000 to 8,700 rad. With standard statistical methods we found no difference between the irradiated and… CONTINUE READING
