Correction of distal limb prolapse of a diverting colostomy by stapling under sedation



Correction of distal limb prolapse of a diverting colostomy by stapling under sedation



Colorectal Disease 14(5): E274



To describe a surgical technique to treat colostomy prolapse as a day case procedure with the patient under sedation and analgesia. A 60-mm GIA Universal Stapler is inserted into the lumen of the prolapsed colon at right angles to the contour of the abdominal wall. Several firings are then made to completely divide the prolapsed colon. The instrument is then placed parallel to the skin to remove the prolapsed portion leaving 1-2 cm of bowel above the level of the skin. Two patients underwent the procedure. The operation times were 30 and 13 min. Both took oral liquids 2 h after surgery and solids 2 h later. They were discharged at 24 and 4 h after surgery, respectively. No postoperative pain was reported in either case. At 14 and 6 months of follow-up there has been no recurrence. Stapling treatment of prolapsed colostomies has the advantage of being an extra-abdominal procedure. It is performed under sedation and analgesia, the operation time is very short, recovery to normal life is rapid and there is less likelihood of complications by avoiding a laparotomy.
