Metabolic acidosis: an emerging problem in patients with intestinal segments as part of urinary diversion. A report of two cases.

Abstract

Two cases of severe metabolic acidosis are reported, one of which led to severe disablement of the patient due to osteomalacia. Both patients had a urinary diversion performed years beforehand, one consisting of a continent ileal Kock reservoir and the other of a urethral Kock pouch. The mechanisms of these complications and their treatment are discussed.
