Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the use of a transverse tubularized segment(s) of ileum in the Mitrofanoff or Malone antegrade colonic enema (MACE) procedures.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Eleven patients in three centres underwent the formation of a continent conduit to bowel (MACE, eight patients) and/or bladder (Mitrofanoff, four) using either a single segment of transverse tubularized ileum (10 patients) or two segments of ileum anastomosed and tubularized into a single conduit (two).

RESULTS:

Within a follow-up of 8 weeks to 6 months, all conduits were continent and catheterized easily. One stomal stenosis required a revision procedure.

CONCLUSION:

This method for forming a continent catheterizing conduit, based on the Mitrofanoff principle, appears to be effective and is recommended in cases where the appendix cannot be used or where a second conduit is required.
