Abstract

Gastrointestinal stapling instruments have achieved widespread application in intestinal surgery. Reported advantages of stapled bowel procedures compared to classic hand-sutured procedures include reduced tissue trauma, shorter operating time, and improved blood supply to the stapled bowel segment. A technique for creation of an end colostomy using the end-to-end anastomosis stapler (EEA instrument) is described. This technique was used in 11 gynecologic oncology patients who required colostomy. Postoperative stomal function was normal in all cases. No patient developed stomal necrosis, peristomal hematoma, or abscess. No delayed complications have been observed. Colostomy creation with the EEA instrument is a safe, simple and rapid procedure. Possible advantages of the stapled colostomy are enhanced blood flow to the stomal site, reduced incidence of peristomal infection, and improved appliance fit.
