Abstract

Abstract:

Successful application of antegrade colonic enema procedure in selected patients with intractable constipation requires creation of an easy catheterizable but continent stoma. We describe a new laparoscopic technique for antegrade colonic enema procedure by using the in situ appendix that is combined with a Nissen-like cecoplication around the appendix to create a one-way valve.
