A 55-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with dysuria. We were unable to catheterize her using a nelaton catheter because of a urethral stricture, resulting in a large residual urine volume on ultrasonography. The circumference of the periurethral tissue was also thickened and the entire length of the urethra was stenotic, without apparent cause, on magnetic resonance imaging. Biopsy did not reveal malignancy. The pathological diagnosis of the periurethral tissue was simply fibrosis, and there was no definitive diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: Among available urinary diversion, continent cutaneous urinary diversion (CCUD) is not frequently used after cystectomy for malignancy. The aim of our work was to assess mid-term oncological and functional outcomes of CCUD in case of malignancies. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively included all patients who underwent CCUD after radical cystectomy for cancer (according Mitrofanoff or Monti's principle) between July 2001 and November 2015 in our department...

BACKGROUND: Effective bladder emptying by clean intermittent catheterization for children with severe bladder dysfunction is critical for renal preservation and social integration. Use of a continent catheterizable conduit (CCC) as urethral alternative procedure provides effective bladder drainage. However, it brings a substantive maintenance. METHODS: Retrospective review of the indications and long-term outcomes of 54 patients with a Mitrofanoff procedure in a single center over a 20-year period (1995-2015)...

PURPOSE: Bladder augmentation is an effective surgical procedure for increasing bladder capacity and reducing pressure on the urinary system. It is indicated for patients with anomalies such as spina bifida, myelomeningocele, urethral valve and bladder exstrophy, who progress with low tolerance of medication. CASES: This was a retrospective study conducted on pediatric patients submitted to bladder augmentation from 2000 to 2011. RESULTS: 34 patients aged 4 to 17 years were submitted to bladder augmentation, 30 of them with an ileal loop and 4 with a ureter...

Female hypospadias is a rare anomaly of the female urethra where it opens on the anterior vaginal wall anywhere between the introitus and the fornix. It is often associated with other genitourinary anomalies such as Cloacal malformation, female pseudohermaphroditism, nonneurogenic neurogenic bladder and urethral duplication. Idiopathic female pseudohermaphroditism is extremely rare, and most cases occur secondary to adrenogenital syndrome or maternal androgen exposure. We report a unique case of a 1-year and 4-month-old girl who presented with ambiguous genitalia and renal failure secondary to a non-neurogenic neurogenic bladder...

A 29-year-old woman had undergone gastrocystoplasty with Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy for urethral trauma at 9 years of age. Since then, she was being followed up for performing clean intermittent self-catheterization at regular intervals. Twenty years after the surgery, she presented with gross hematuria. Ultrasonographic findings revealed bilateral hydronephrosis. Cystoscopy and computed tomography (CT) revealed invasive bladder cancer with pelvic lymph node metastases. A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma with signet ring cell carcinoma...

We present a rare complication of abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) in a child undergoing complex urologic reconstruction. A 10-year-old female born with the abdominal wall defect cloacal exstrophy who had previously undergone multiple abdominal procedures then developed findings consistent with ACS following a complex Mitrofanoff procedure. Although intravesical pressures were not documented because of the nature of her reconstruction, her ACS-type findings were (1) abdominal pain, (2) melena, (3) pulmonary hypoinflation, (4) renal insufficiency, (5) tachycardia, and (6) segmental ischemic small bowel...

Cutaneous catheterizable channels allow for continent bladder emptying when an alternate route is desired. The goals of channel creation in the neurogenic bladder population are successful urine elimination, renal preservation, continence and lastly cosmesis. In addition to a particular surgeon's comfort and experience with a given procedure, individual patient factors such as medical comorbidities, anatomic factors, and occupational function should be central to the selection of a surgical approach. An ideal channel is one that is short, straight, and well supported by associated blood supply and surrounding adventitia, so as to minimize difficulty with catheterization...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the influence of continent external urinary diversion type Mitrofanoff on male sexuality. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between 1992 and 2011, 140 patients underwent continent urinary diversion type Mitrofanoff at an academic hospital. Among 76 men, 46 were interviewed about their sexuality after this operation. This study was performed using a set of validated questionnaires (IIEF, DAN PSS and Urolife), grouped by the model of the CTMH. Patients were divided according to their marital status: group 1: patients married before surgery (15 cases), group 2: patients married after surgery (7 cases) and group 3: singles (24 cases)...

Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal tumour predominantly affecting the female pelvis and perineum but has also been described in males. This tumour can often present a diagnostic challenge and has a propensity for local recurrence after surgical excision. We present an unusual case of aggressive angiomyxoma arising from the bladder of a female patient which required local excision and Mitrofanoff formation.

This report is of robotic-assisted laparoscopic Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy in a 12-year-old patient with detrusor underactivity and hereditary sensory neuropathy. The whole operation was performed in 555 minutes with no open conversion. The patient experienced one episode of stomal stenosis, which required dilatation. At 3-year follow-up, the patient had both stomal and urinary continence. This is a safe and effective procedure to create a means of urinary catheterisation with avoidance of a large unsightly scar and comparable clinical outcome to an open procedure...

OBJECTIVE: Penile agenesis is a rare congenital abnormality with an incidence of 1 in 30 million births. We want to demonstrate in this video a new technique of neophalloplasty based on two transverse skin flaps from lower abdominal wall. METHODS: The patient was placed into a prone position; the urethral meatus was found inside the rectum, 2 cm from the anal border. An Anterior Sagittal Transrectal Approach (ASTRA) approach was performed; the urethra was isolated and repositioned as a perineal urethrostomy...

BACKGROUND: Robot-assisted laparoscopic augmentation ileocystoplasty with Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy (RALIMA) may protect the upper urinary tract and reestablish continence in patients with refractory neurogenic bladder. Robotic assistance can provide the benefits of minimally invasive surgery without the steep learning curve of pure laparoscopy. OBJECTIVE: To highlight the interim outcomes of RALIMA with salient tips and technical modifications through comparison with patients undergoing open augmentation ileocystoplasty (OAI)...

BACKGROUND: In 1980, Mitrofanoff described the creation of an appendicovesicostomy for continent urinary diversion. This procedure greatly facilitates clean intermittent catheterisation in patients with neurogenic bladder. The purpose of our study was to determine the clinical efficacy of the laparoscopic Mitrofanoff catheterisable stoma for children and adolescents with spina bifida. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Review of hospital records revealed that 11 children with spina bifida underwent a laparoscopic Mitrofanoff procedure with at least 1-year of follow-up...

The partial substitution of the ureter using a pediculated double short segments of the ileum is a technique used to re-establish ureteral transit and preserve the renal unit, following the resection of extensive ureteral lesions. Standard surgical procedure for an ileoureteroplasty consists of isolating an ileal duct of equal or greater length than the ureteral defect and interposing it in the urinary tract in an isoperistaltic direction. Monti described a surgical technique that allows for the creation of catheterizable stomas in continent urinary diversions, using the Mitrofanoff principle...
