Case Study
The article describes the case of an 83-year old patient who was treated for his end colostomy prolapse six months after abdominoperineal resection for a low rectal cancer with an irreducible stomal prolapse. The surgeons reversed the prolapsed intestinal wall and constructed a new colostomy for the patient. Various reasons for the stomal prolapse are suggested. Conservative measures were undertaken and the use of linear stapler was effective in preventing blood loss during the surgery.

    Stomal prolapse is one of the common complications in transverse colostomy and can be managed conservatively in most cases; however, laparotomy and reconstruction of the stoma may sometimes be required, especially in case of irreducible colostomy prolapse. We have reported a simple local repair...

    Several procedures have been proposed for the prolapse of a loop colostomy. However, most are associated with a high recurrence rate or are rather expensive. We have newly developed a simple, safe, and inexpensive method, which is a modification of Thiersch's method, for repair of distal limb...

    Carcinomas rarely occur at the site of a colostomy. A 73-year-old man underwent abdominoperineal resection (Miles' surgical procedure) for rectal carcinoma in September 1988. He did not return to the hospital until September 1995, when he was admitted with stricture of the stoma. Neither tumor...
