Ten children have undergone lower urinary tract reconstruction by ileocaecocystoplasty. Four patients had previously been diverted and the other six were reconstructed because of intractable incontinence or deteriorating renal function. Continence was primarily achieved in eight patients and renal function improved or remained stable in all 10. Reflux was prevented by a plicated ileocaecal valve in five of eight patients. Continued pharmacological manipulation, intermittent self catheterisation and secondary surgical intervention were frequently necessary in these patients who required careful counselling and follow-up.
