Abstract

A technique for constructing a loop enterostomy using a red Robinson catheter as a stabilizing 'rod' is described. The catheter is placed subcutaneously and exits through skin stab wounds placed far enough from the stoma to allow immediate placement of a standard ostomy appliance. By eliminating the skin level rod common to most descriptions of loop enterostomy construction techniques, difficulty with good fixation of skin appliances is eliminated.
