Ileostomy, End

  • Jameson L. Chassin


An end ileostomy is generally done in conjunction with a subtotal or total colectomy for inflammatory bowel disease. Occasionally a temporary end ileostomy and mucous fistula of the distal end of the bowel is constructed after the resection of a gangrenous segment of intestine or a perforated cecal lesion, when primary anastomosis is contraindicated.
