This operative video shows the construction of a "wet colostomy" involving ureteric implantation into a sigmoid colostomy as part of a pelvic exenteration for a local advanced rectal cancer invading the prostate. The disease necessitated performance of a total pelvic exenteration with en bloc abdomino-perineal excision of the rectum and cystoprostatectomy. Rather then reconstructing the urinary tract with creation of an ileal conduit with a urinary stoma on the right side of the patient’s abdomen and a separate end colostomy, the potential morbidity from a second stoma was avoided by the use of a double-barrelled wet colostomy (DBWC) as a single stoma. Another advantage of a single site stoma is the possibility of creating a vertical rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (VRAM) flap for closure of the perineal defect. The video is associated with a manuscript that has been submitted for publication in Colorectal Disease (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journa...).
