Abstract

Purpose: Success with Malone antegrade continence enemas (MACE) requires reliable access to the colon and a customized enema regimen. Use of the appendix in situ provides a natural and well-vascularized conduit. When the appendix is absent or inadequate, alternative techniques are required. We report our experience using Monti channels to administer antegrade continence enemas. Materials and Methods: Of the 106 MACE procedures performed in 53 months a Monti-MACE was created in 13. Indications for use of ileum, technique, ease of catheterization and incidence of complications were reviewed. Results: Mean followup was 21.7 months. Two patients had transient difficulty advancing the catheter into the cecum. Stoma revisions were required for critical stenosis in 2 patients (15.4%). Stoma leakage occurred in 1 patient after multiple stoma revisions. Conclusions: The Monti-MACE provides continent access to the colon for antegrade enemas. The rate of stomal revision is only slightly higher than that reported for appendicocecostomy. While use of the appendix in situ remains our preference, reconfigured ileum is a reliable substitute in patients without a suitable appendix.
