Abstract

Purpose: We describe a technique for creating a concealed umbilical stoma. Materials and Methods: The base of the umbilicus is used as a superiorly based skin flap that is incorporated into the spatulated stoma. Six patients have undergone diversion using this technique. The stoma was constructed from appendix in 4 cases, stomach in 1 and tapered ileum in 1. Results: All patients achieved an easily catheterizable hidden umbilical stoma, are dry on clean intermittent catheterization and have had no stomatitis or peristomal hernia. Conclusions: This technique for creating a concealed umbilical stoma preserves the native appearance of the umbilicus and combines a superior cosmetic result with an easily catheterizable stoma.
