Mitrofanoff channel survival after pedicle ligation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In patients who have undergone complex genitourinary reconstruction, additional abdominal surgery is often required. We report 2 cases in which the blood supply to an existing Mitrofanoff channel was divided. In both cases, the conduits appeared to remain well perfused, presumably based on collateral blood supply. Both conduits remained healthy and functioning at more than 1 year of follow-up.
