The Mitrofanoff technique allows for a mechanism of continence by creating an intramural conduit in the bladder wall in which the appendix is located. The Mitrofanoff technique has demonstrated continence and an emptying system by catheterization with few complications. The present video demonstrates the Saint Augustin technique of Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy performed laparoscopically.
