Metabolic complications may result any time intestinal segments are positioned in contact with the urinary stream as a consequence of the reabsorption of urinary solutes by the segments. These complications are encountered most frequently, but not exclusively, after ureterosigmoidostomy. The authors present the current understanding of the pathophysiology of the metabolic alterations that follow intestinal transposition into the urinary tract.
