The purpose

Knowing that the risk of stoma associated herniation (parastomal or incisional) is 30-50% and the associated morbidity significant, standard placement of a prophylactic mesh upon stoma creation might prevent parastomal (or incisional herniation, after closure) and improve the quality of life of a large group of patients. This study is meant to be a pilot study to see whether the mesh related risks of infection and adhesion morbidity are acceptable if the mesh is placed intraperitoneally.
