In the decade 1967-1977, 663 patients with different gynecologic neoplasms were admitted and treated at our Department. Because of the involvement of the urinary tract, urinary diversion was required in 41 cases. Ileal conduit was performed in 25 patients (20 affected by carcinoma of uterine cervix, 4 by adenocarcinoma of endometrium, 1 by carcinoma of vulva). In 19 patients such procedure was performed immediately after radical surgical therapy; in 6 patients ileal conduit was indicated because of post irradiation fistulas. Few complications were observed and all of them successfully cured. Authors conclude that Bricker operation is still an effective procedure in gynecologic oncology, both as a complement to radical surgery (in selected patients), and as a complementary treatment of recurrences and complications of radiation therapy.
