A Plea for More Umbilical Stomas in Paediatric Surgical Practice

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.255

INTRODUCTION

Enterostomy formation is commonly performed in paediatric surgical practice. Many surgical procedures in infants and children benefit from a periumbilically sited incision and stoma formation should be no exception. Because of the superior cosmesis following closure of an umbilically-sited colostomy or ileostomy, ease of stoma care and economic benefits, periumbilically sited stomas are an attractive alternative for use in both neonates and children.
