What is Ureteroenteric anastomosis?

Ureteroenteric anastomotic stricture is an important and well-known complication of urinary diversion and has a reported prevalence of up to 10%1. The most notable consequence of stricture is deterioration in glomerular filtration rate, which eventually results in partial or total permanent loss of kidney function2.

What causes anastomosis stricture?

Anastomotic stricture can be caused by a wide range of factors, such as impaired blood flow, suture failure, adhesion, mesenteric panniculitis, a history of radiotherapy, and diverting stomas.

Why does Ureterosigmoidostomy cause metabolic acidosis?

Urea levels in the blood are higher due to urea crossing the colon wall. In the large intestine, sodium is swapped for potassium, and chloride for bicarbonate, this causes hypokalaemia and acidosis.

What means anastomosis?

An anastomosis is a surgical connection between two structures. It usually means a connection that is created between tubular structures, such as blood vessels or loops of intestine. For example, when part of an intestine is surgically removed, the two remaining ends are sewn or stapled together (anastomosed).

What should you eat when you have a stricture?

Follow a low residue diet to relieve abdominal pain and diarrhea. If you have strictures, it is especially important to avoid nuts, seeds, beans and kernels. Avoid foods that may increase stool output such as fresh fruits and vegetables, prunes and caffeinated beverages. Cold foods may help reduce diarrhea.

Can you get your colon removed?

A colectomy is a type of surgery used to treat colon diseases. These include cancer, inflammatory disease, or diverticulitis. The surgery is done by removing a portion of the colon. The colon is part of the large intestine.

What is the cause of metabolic acidosis?

Metabolic acidosis develops when too much acid is produced in the body. It can also occur when the kidneys cannot remove enough acid from the body.

What is normal anion gap metabolic acidosis?

Healthy subjects typically have a gap of 0 to slightly normal (< 10 mEq/L). A urine anion gap of more than 20 mEq/L is seen in metabolic acidosis when the kidneys are unable to excrete ammonia (such as in renal tubular acidosis).
