  • Mitrofanoff: Catheterization and Care (Child) [English] Public

    A Mitrofanoff​ (say: me-TROFF-an-off) is a small tunnel from the bladder to the outside of the body. This tunnel is made with surgery (an operation). The opening on the outside of the body is called a stoma. Right after the operation, your child will have a tube that drains urine (pee) from the bladder. This is called a suprapubic catheter. A catheter is a thin, soft tube. Later, you and your child need to learn how to use a different kind of catheter. This catheter drains urine through the Mitrofanoff. You will put it in every time your child's bladder needs to be emptied. A nurse will teach you and your child how to catheterize the Mitrofanoff. (English)
