AbstractBackground: An ileostomy is an external opening constructed between the small intestine and the abdominal wall, usually by using distal ileum, Ileostomies can be of various types. The most common has been the end ileostomy, using a technique popularised by Brooke and Turnbull. Aim And Objective; To compare the morbidity & mortality incidence of early & delayed ileostomy closure.
Conclusion: In conclusion, from reports of our limited experience with both methods early closure of temporary loop ileostomy within 4 weeks shows no significantly increased morbidity except increased wound infection. Routine allocation of patients with temporary loop stomas to early closure could improve patient well being.
