Ileostomy and Colostomy

  • Oliver S. Soldes

Abstract

In any age group, creation of an intestinal stoma is a significant event with major physiologic, body image, lifestyle, and psychosocial implications. Management and indications for ostomies in infants and young children are often different than in adolescents and adults. This is a consequence of the differing diagnoses, physiology, size, growth and development issues, complications, and unique patient and parental adjustment concerns.
