Three patients with cervical carcinoma underwent laparoscopic descending colostomy. The indications for colostomy included severe radiation proctitis, enterovaginal fistula secondary to progressive pelvic tumor, and large bowel obstruction from progressive pelvic tumor. Two patients were treated with laparoscopic descending end colostomy with creation of a Hartman’s pouch, and the third patient underwent laparoscopic descending loop colostomy. The techniques utilized are discussed.
