Parastomal Hernia

“Some degree of herniation around a colostomy is so common that this complication may be regarded as inevitable”


parastomal hernia1
Parastomal Hernia

An Incisional Hernia related to an abdominal wall stoma.

Particularly noticeable on tensing the abdominal wall muscles- coughing, sneezing, straining or standing.

para stomal hernia
Para Stomal Hernia

Parastomal herniation is not uncommon and the management of a parastomal hernia is a common clinical dilemma.

Once such a hernia is established, it is difficult to treat, and many operative factors have been claimed to influence its occurrence and many techniques of repair have been described.

[Carne, Robertson and Frizelle]

incidence of parastomal hernia
Incidence of Parastomal Hernia

0 – 48% depending on type of stoma and length of follow up

[Carne, PWG; Robertson, GM; Frizelle, FA. 2003]

20-25% Commoner in end colostomy

[Devlin, 1982]

67% transverse loop colostomy

[Nordstrum &Hulten, 1987]

Incidence of Parastomal Hernia

50% Colostomy

[Nugent, 1999]

28% Ileostomy

[Williams, 1990]

5-8% Urostomy

[Rubin & Bailey1993]

choice of surgical procedures
Choice of Surgical Procedures

1. Stoma Relocation

2. Local Tissue Repair

3. Prosthetic Repair - intraperitoneal

- extraperitoneal

- fascial onlay

Surgical Repair

Increased infection rates

Recurrence 39% [Reiger, 2004]

Complications 57% [Hughes, 1999]

Laparoscopic repair with mesh 10% recurrence[Le Blanc, 2004]

cost effectiveness
Cost Effectiveness


Chest infection Wound infection Adhesion complications Earlier recovery Shorter patient stay Better productivity

advantages of laparoscopy
Advantages of Laparoscopy

Direct magnified vision allowingidentification of fine anatomy

Sharp precise dissection

Reduction of operating time

Reduced blood loss

choice of mesh
Choice of Mesh

1. Compound polypropylene

2. e PTFE expanded polytetrafluoroethylene

3. Mixtures of absorbable and permanent fibres woven together to minimise the foreign body reaction

follow up
Follow Up

Patients reviewed 3 monthly

- 25 months

No mesh related bowel erosion, fistulisation or adhesion formation observed

2 recurrences - further repair


Faster recovery of bowel function

Less morbidity

Shorter length of hospital stay


Parastomal herniae are common

Associated with high morbidity

Laparoscopic repair decreases post-operative pain

Faster recovery

Decreased overall morbidity

Greater patient satisfaction
