Dr Paul Mitrofanoff invented a procedure in 1980, to stop incontinence. The procedure creates a channel which acts in the same way as a urethra which is made from the appendix, bowel or both, as this is like a tube. Intermittent self catheterisation via the Mitrofanoff is required to empty the bladder, without undressing or moving out of a wheelchair. The Mitrofanoff is an alternative producer for continence due to a variety of reasons such as spina bifida, extrophy of the bladder, epispadias, ectopic bladder, etc.

Mitrofanoff Support began in 2010 by a person who has had the Mitrofanoff procedure. Mitrofanoff Support offers information and support to anyone who may be about to have, or already has a Mitrofanoff procedure.
