A simple technique for repair of distal limb prolapse of a loop colostomy



A simple technique for repair of distal limb prolapse of a loop colostomy



Techniques in Coloproctology 16(3): 255-256



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 prolapse of a loop colostomy.
