Loop ileostomy versus loop colostomy
for fecal diversion after colorectal or coloanal anastomosis: a meta-analysis.
3) There are different surgical options for colostomy depending on the site of obstruction such as transverse loop/divided or sigmoid loop/divided loop colostomy
The operative finding was that of an unresectable caecal tumour, and a defunctioning loop colostomy
A sigmoid loop colostomy
was applied to decompress the large bowel.
The defect was closed primarily and the transverse colon brought to the skin in a diverting loop colostomy
The case of a 70-year-old man who presented with strangulated rectal prolapse and was managed successfully with perineal proctosigmoidectomy (Altemeier's procedure) combined with diverting sigmoid loop colostomy
He proceeded to a sigmoid loop colostomy
and washed out the retro peritoneal space.
One required a loop colostomy
3 years after completing treatment for anal stenosis causing faecal incontinence and 1 required an APR 2 years after chemoradiation for persistent anal pain.
It has been reported as an unusual complication after diversion transverse loop colostomy
in a patient with long-standing ulcerative colitis resulting from distal stomal and rectal stenosis and accumulation of mucus in the closed loop over many years (5).
Transverse loop colostomy
had higher number of complications / problems as compared with sigmoid loop colostomy
At the initial operation, a loop colostomy
is fashioned proximal to the obstructing tumour (which is left in situ) in order to decompress the bowel.
An abdominal X-ray confirmed a bowel perforation, a laparotomy was performed to repair the bowel and a protective loop colostomy
