BACKGROUND: Antegrade colonic enema, via a caecal access [Malone antegrade continence enema (MACE)], is proposed to selected patients suffering from incontinence and/or constipation when other therapeutic modalities have failed. METHODS: We compared complication rates after three MACE techniques: appendicostomy, caecal neoappendicostomy, and ileal neoappendicostomy in 28 adult patients having 31 MACE operations. RESULTS: Stenoses and leakages occurred more frequently after appendicostomy and caecal flap than after ileal neoappendicostomy. This latter technique appears to reduce morbidity for adult patients.
