CARVALHO, César Guerreiro de; VALE, Carlos Eduardo Pereira do  and  CASTRO JR., Paulo César de. Initial experience in the treatment of parastomal hernias. Rev bras. colo-proctol. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.2, pp.251-256. ISSN 0101-9880.

The parastomal hernia is a direct consequence of making the stoma. Although all the efforts used in its prevention, this condition is a frequent long-term complication that increases with time. Management of the hernia is always surgical and different techniques have been proposed. In this article, the authors present a brief revision of the surgical treatment and present their own technique. The defect is assessed by videolaparoscopy and correction is performed with an intraperitoneal mesh; we call this technique "tie knot". In our 17 patients' series, we observed good results and no recurrence until now.

Keywords : parastomal hernia; vídeolaparoscopy.
