Abstract Twenty-four patients in whom trephine stoma formation was performed over a 4-year period are described. This procedure permits the formation of an end ileostomy or colostomy without laparotomy. It is simple, rapid, safe and allows speedy recovery. It is widely applicable and previous abdominal surgery is no contraindication. The procedure was impossible in two patients who required laparotomy and in a third in whom a loop colostomy was created. Operation time was shorter and postoperative opiate requirements less than when laparotomy was undertaken for stoma formation. Follow-up (median 1 year) of 17 patients confirmed a low incidence of complications (two prolapses, one parastomal hernia) after trephine stoma formation. This procedure is recommended as the preferred method of ileostomy or colostomy formation when laparotomy is not otherwise indicated.
