Abstract

Purpose To assess the safety and quality of life in adult patients undergoing cecostomy tube placement. Materials and Methods Percutaneous cecostomy was performed in 23 adults (10 men and 13 women) with neurogenic bowel for whom noninvasive therapeutic approaches for chronic refractory constipation or fecal incontinence had failed. Mean patient age was 41 years (range, 19-74 y). A retrospective, standardized questionnaire evaluated satisfaction and quality of life before and after cecostomy. Results All 23 cecostomy procedures were technically successful with no intraprocedural complications. At a mean follow-up of 42 months (range, 1-160 mo), there was one (5%) major complication, a pericecal abscess. One or more minor complications in 11 of 23 (48%) patients included leaking around the tube (5 of 23; 22%) and partial or complete dislodgment of the tube (3 of 23; 13%). In all cases, the cecostomy tube was exchanged successfully. Satisfaction scores improved from a mean of 2.2 points (range, 0-6 points; median, 1.5) to 7.6 points (range, 4-10 points; median, 8). The percentage of patients using laxative softeners decreased from 74% to 40%, and patients requiring assistance decreased from 52% to 35% after cecostomy placement. Conclusions Percutaneous cecostomy is a safe procedure for the management of adult patients. Patients are able to achieve greater independence in their activities of daily living and are highly satisfied with the outcomes.
