Gastrocystoplasty now has been used in humans for more than 30 years and seems to have several advantages over intestinocystoplasty. Gastrocystoplasty results in a net chloride excretion preventing hyperchloremic acidosis. Mucous production is minimal. Submucosal tunnel implantation is easily achieved.

Advantages and disadvantages of the use of stomach versus bowel in urinary reconstruction are discussed herein.
