Thread: MACE operation

    MACE operation

    I went to consult with the doctor about the mitrofanoff surgery and he suggested that I also do the MACE procedure so that I could do my bowel program less invasively(no one sticking a finger up my butt). Is it worth it?

    did you get the MACE procedure? i'm considering it, but haven't found much info on people having it with a SCI. thanks!

    I can tell you we don't do it often at all. I am not sure why, other than possibly it becomes more of a procedure than people want to tackle. Couldn't find much either on it's use in people with a SCI.

    Did you have the MACE operation? I am considering getting this done and was hoping for an opinion on it. Thanks

    Malone antegrade continence enema (MACE) is a therapeutic option to treat chronic constipation and fecal incontinence in patients with neurogenic bowel.

    Before going to the extent of this surgery, have you tried Peristeen by Coloplast?
