Abstract

Prolapse is a common complication in patients with a transverse loop colostomy. In most cases, the prolapse can be managed conservatively awaiting time for closure eventually. However, loop stoma may also be intentionally permanent or the patient may be too fragile to have the colostomy closed and in these cases a laparotomy is required for correction of the prolpase. A simple method allowing local correction of the prolapsed loop stoma is described.
