Construction of a diverting loop ileostomy is not uncommon, but not entirely risk free. The morbidity related to loop ileostomies and loop ileostomy closure is considerable. Some of the most frequent stoma complications are peristomal skin irritation, bandaging problems and leakage. In loop ileostomies the efferent limb is in closer contact with the skin, increasing the risk of irritation. End ileostomies however, are everted around the entire stomal circumference, allowing the stoma output to flow directly into the appliance. We present a novel simple technique for constructing a functional loop ileostomy, but with a single lumen and appearance of an end ileostomy that can be considered as a reasonable option for construction of a diverting ileostomy.
