Surgical Colostomy to Repair Intra-operative Bowel Perforation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit contains five images demonstrating a surgical colostomy procedure to repair an intra-operative bowel perforation. Images A and B at top detail the surgical incision and the suctioning of fecal material that had leaked into the abdominal cavity. Image C shows the resection of the perforated segment of bowel. Image D shows how the proximal sigmmoid colon is brought out through the left abdominal wall to create a stoma. The final image depicts the post-operative condition with a colostomy bag in place.
