3) We report an ileal reservoir with Mitrofanoff continent diversion to preserve renal function.
The cecal appendix was isolated with vascular preservation to perform Mitrofanoff continent diversion that was placed in the right submucosal tunnel, with the right ureter in the medial submucosal tunnel and the left ureter in the left submucosal tunnel.
A midline incision was used in nine patients who required the Mitrofanoff procedure.
Clean intermittent catheterization was performed through the patients' own urethras in six cases (43%) and through a Mitrofanoff stoma in five patients (36%).
Called as an augmentation ileocystoplasty with Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy, the surgery normally begins with a big incision, about six inches long, from above the navel down to the pubic area, which is then followed by placement of retractors to pull the stomach muscles out of the way.
Foleys, suprapubics, external catheters, adult incontinence briefs, and the Mitrofanoff procedure were presented with the information that patients need to select the best option for them at this time.
A variety of techniques for urinary diversion based on the Mitrofanoff principle have been employed that use different tubular structures as continent abdominal catheterizable channels constructed between the bladder and the skin.
This finding suggests a need to be aware of this complication in patients with urinary diversion, including patients with Monti and other Mitrofanoff procedures.
Outcome: There are several case reports of a robotic-assisted Mitrofanoff procedure in children, (37-42) and one that has described a purely laparoscopic procedure.
Pediatric robotic-assisted laparoscopic augmentation ileocystoplasty and Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy: complete intracorporeal--initial case report.
A 45-year-old woman with a 24-year history of neurogenic bladder due to progressive multiple sclerosis underwent a Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy and began ISC via the continent stoma.
Flexible cystoscopy through the Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy revealed a raised flap visualised in the lumen of the appendiceal stoma.
