Several surgical procedures have been described for the repair of paracolostoInal hernia. We describe a local technique approach using stoina relocation with insertion of a Dacron prosthesis. Among 14 patients operated on for paracolostomal hernia, this technique was nsed in 10 patients. There was no mortality or morbidity (no prosthesis infection). During follow-up there was one recurrence, which was reoperated with a good final result. This technique can be recommended for the few patients in whom a surgical repalr is mandated.
