Abstract

Fecal soiling or intractable constipation frequently occurs in association with urinary incontinence in children with varying pathologic conditions. To manage double incontinence or the combination of wetting and severe constipation, a Mitrofanoff conduit and a channel for antegrade continence enema is constructed using the appendix by open surgery. We present a video of the first case of robot-assisted laparoscopy for simultaneous reconstruction of a continent urinary diversion using the Mitrofanoff principle and a Malone antegrade continent enema using the divided appendix.
