This study aimed to present a modified laparoscopic keyhole parastomal hernia repair technique with in situ re-ostomy and show its safety and feasibility at a mid-term follow-up.


The technique begins with adhesiolysis during laparoscopy. An annular incision is made between the skin and stomal mucosa. Then, after all adhesions of the stomal bowel and its mesentery are separated from the hernial sac, the stomal bowel is delivered through the keyhole mesh. The mesh is then stitched to the stomal bowel and placed intraperitoneally. The hernial ring is narrowed, and the mesh is further stitched to the hernial ring and stomal tube. After the mesh is fixed, the redundant stomal bowel is shortened, and a new in situ stoma is matured in the conventional way.


Altogether, 65 consecutive patients underwent successful hernia repair via a modified laparoscopic keyhole with in situ re-ostomy. Two of the patients had recurrent parastomal hernias. No mortalities occurred during the perioperative period. Morbidities included two cases of seroma and three of ileus, all of which were cured with conservative treatment. In addition, one case of intestinal perforation was rescued by intestinal resection and enteroenterostomy. Median follow-up was 29 months (range 3–60 months). No complications of mesh-related infection or patch erosion were noted during the follow-up.


Modified laparoscopic keyhole parastomal hernia repair with in situ re-ostomy is a safe procedure with a low recurrence rate at the mid-term follow-up.
