Abstract

Metabolic complications are frequently seen following urinary diversion with an intestinal segment. Afferent limb complications are noted in 10% of patients undergoing continent Kock urinary diversion. We present a patient with cloacal exstrophy who developed significant hypocalcemic tetany and metabolic acidosis related to a nondraining afferent limb of a Kock pouch created to achieve continence.
