Prolapsed stoma

How do I Manage a Prolapsed Stoma?  (3 pages) – A brief article published by Michigan Medicine, University of Michigan. Good general information and a couple of graphic but informative photos of prolapsed stomas.

Patient Advice Leaflet for Managing a Prolapsed Stoma (2 pages) – Another brief but informative article. This one’s published by the UK’s Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals.

Prolapse & retraction (2 pages) – Again, brief but informative. Written by an Enhanced Recovery Nurse Facilitator at a hospital in the UK. Unfortunately, she refers only to colostomies throughout the article, but I believe she’s using it as an umbrella term for both colostomies and ileostomies.
