ARENAS, J. et al. Hypomagnesaemia severe in patients with high flow ileostomy. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.1, pp.310-313. ISSN 1699-5198.

The need to create a stoma is frequent in the daily clinical practice. Usually ileostomies work well within the first 24 hours. However, many times they are associated with important morbidity up to 76%. Although the complications derived from this technique may be surgical, metabolic complications, which are preceded by large losses through the stoma, are the ones going undetected. It is not rare to see patients carrying an ileostomy that come repeatedly to the hospital with severe metabolic impairments and in whom the underlying cause remains untreated. The case reported herein is just one of a series published in this journal making us aware of the need for a multidisciplinary approach of the ileostomies and the prevention of major complications derived from their poor functioning.
