The results of the original method of colostomy formation in 67 patients with acute large bowel obstruction (ALBO) were studied. In total, postoperative complications of a purulent-inflammatory nature (skin maceration, suppuration of postoperative and paracolostomic wounds, necrosis of colostomy, abscess of the abdominal cavity, and paracolostomal fistula) in both groups were observed in 30(44.8%) patients. In Group 1 (n=40), with the classical method of colostomy formation, purulent-inflammatory complications were observed in 21(52.5%) patients, in Group 2 (n=27) with the original method of colostomy formation in 4(14.8%) patients. Bleeding from colostomy and colostomy prolapse occurred only in Group 1 in 8(20%) patients. The proposed method of applying a colostomy helps reduce purulent-inflammatory complications by more than 3 times and provides prevention of bleeding and colostomy prolapse.
