Luminal nitric oxide in ileal reservoirs for continent cutaneous diversion or orthotopic bladder reconstruction.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To measure mucosal inflammation as reflected in nitric oxide (NO) production in ileal reservoirs for the storage of urine and to correlate it with the growth of bacteria as well as CRP. METHODS Intraluminal gas NO concentrations were determined using the chemoluminescence technique in 25 patients with continent cutaneous ileal reservoirs (Kock… (More)
