Nephrostomy has been the standard method of urinary diversion for chronic ureteral obstruction or when placement of ureteral stents has failed. We describe the first case of left kidney ileal conduit (Briker’s urinary diversion) subcutaneous urinary by-pass. This method made the patient free from a second collecting bag without any significant complications. This method may improve the quality of life of patients with severe ureteral obstruction and ileal conduit.
