Abstract
A hospital survey of adult reconstructive urologic surgery in the Nordic countries is presented. The response rate was 80% and included most general hospitals and university clinics. Despite similarities between the healthcare systems of the various countries several differences were found. Cystectomy was performed in a large number of institutions in all countries except Denmark. The annual number of orthotopic bladder substitutions per institution was calculated as three to four (range of medians for each country) and the number of continent cutaneous diversions as two to seven. Open urethral procedures were performed more frequently in Sweden than in the other countries. Surgery for penile curvature and implantation of three-component... (More)
