The study reports on radiographic findings obtained from 70 male patients in whom, following radical cystoprostatectomy for carcinoma, an ileum neobladder was created. Morphological appearance and postoperative complications of this continent type of bladder replacement were documented by means of cystography, excretory urography, retrograde urethrography and CT. Specific complications rarely arose from suture insufficiencies of the neobladder itself (n = 3) or from the ileourethral anastomosis (n = 2). Stenoses occurred at the site of the ileourethral (n = 9) and the ureteroileal anastomosis (n = 2). Transient dilatation of the upper urinary tract was observed in the majority of patients. Non-specific complications included pelvic abscesses (n = 2), haematomas (n = 2), lymphoceles (n = 3), and ileus (n = 2).
