BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Intestinal stomas are commonly constructed in an emergency as well as elective setting for a variety of indications. Historically associated with a high morbidity, evolution of skills on the part of the surgeon has lead to better understanding of the indications, technique of construction and management of a stoma. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: 1. To study the various indications of intestinal stomas. 2. To study the techniques of intestinal stomas. 3. To study the complications of intestinal stomas and their management. 4. To study the overall compliance of patients in whom a stoma was constructed. METHODS: 50 patients admitted in Govt. Royapettah Hospital and later operated and managed with a stoma were closely followed up from the date of admission to the date of discharge and the various parameters were studied. RESULTS: The indications, technique, complications and its management were studied in detail by following patients in person or through phone and the results were analyzed in detail. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSION: Construction and management of stoma was associated with a few complications. Most patients however tolerated the procedure well and the overall compliance was satisfactory. Loop ileostomy was the commonly constructed stoma and the one associated with most complications. Transverse loop colostomy was associated with no complications and was extremely well tolerated.
