In brief: Created bladder
Bladder that is created by a urology surgeon.
It is typically created from the patient's own intestine. There is hope that neo bladders can be created from engineered bio-material. There are risks for the use intestine, but the benefit to the storage of urine outweighs the risk for some patients requiring neo bladders. Indication for neo bladder is absence of a working bladder.
