The 'gold standard' material used to augment the bladder has been intestine. Over the past several years a number of alternatives have become available including the use of stomach, ureter, detrusorectomy that allows the urothelium to bulge for improvement in bladder dynamics, and coverage of this urothelium with demucosalized gastric or colonic segments. The current status of these alternatives is addressed, as well as future options.
