Abstract

Continent, catheterizable enterostomies (Malone stomas) have been formed in 25 patients. A reversed appendicocecostomy was used for the majority, although experience has led to modifications of this procedure. Antegrade enemas are regularly administered via these stomas in the treatment of fecal incontinence and intractable constipation. There have been only two important surgical complications, and the technique has proved to be highly successful. Follow-up of the patients has shown that individual requirements can be met with variations in the administration of the enemas.
