          Abstract

          Augmentation cystoplasty has become a primary form of bladder management in children with a noncompliant bladder. Excellent urinary drainage is required for anastomotic healing and the removal of mucous buildup. Suprapubic drainage traditionally involves a Malecot catheter, although poor irrigation and dislodgment of this type of catheter are well-known complications. We report the placement of an intravesical Jackson-Pratt drain for urinary diversion in augmented bladders.
