BLANCO DIEZ, A. et al. Double barred wet colostomy: analysis. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.8, pp.611-617. ISSN 0210-4806.

We analise our experience in performing the wet colostomy, also called urocolostomy and present seven cases treated at our hospital in which this was used. We present: three women, one underwent an urocolostomy as a result of a mielomeningocele with urinary and fecal incontinence, other because a pelvic malignancy, and the third after developing a post radiotherapy cistoproctitis. Four men, one underwent this surgical procedure as a result of a traumatic paraplejia with multiple urinary fistulae and neurogenic bladder, the other three were secondary to pelvic malignancies (two bladder and one sigmoid malignacies). The outcome was fine in all cases with no pielonefritis neither metabolic disbalances, in all cases it represented a good option for these patients.
