The article discusses the differential diagnosis on the unusual frozen pelvis detected by magnetic resonance imaging on a woman's rectum. Initial findings through transrectal ultrasound revealed inflammatory cells only. The patient underwent laparotomy and defunctioning colostomy to precisely examine the abnormality. The medical operations isolated the Gram positive microaerophilic bacilli, Actinomyces israelii, from perotoneal fluid, and the patient was medicated with high dose penicillin.

    Acute stoma prolapse most commonly occurs following emergency surgery, frequently in patients with significant medical co-morbidities. Correction often requires re-laparotomy and resiting of the stoma, placing an already frail patient at risk of further morbidity. An elderly patient experienced...

    After taking down the colostomy in a patient who has previously undergone a Hartmann's operation, it is possible to restore bowel continuity using the single-port technique via the colostomy site itself. This study presents our experience of this approach using the glove port and standard...

    The creation of a stoma in a multiply scarred abdomen is often difficult because of intra-abdominal adhesions and limited suitable skin sites. We report a simple technique utilising computed tomography which allowed the easy creation of a defunctioning loop colostomy in such an abdomen by simple...

    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...
