Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Each patient randomly allocated onto treatment arm. There are 6 Colorectal surgeons and 1 Colorectal fellow at North Shore Hospital. The random generated number will be created for each surgeon i.e. each surgeon will be provided a random list to account for inter surgeon variability and also differing number of ileostomies each surgeon performs.
On the day of surgery patients who have given written informed consent are randomly allocated into either the treatment or standard of care group by the research nurse by opening the randomization envelope.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Biostatistician provides a random computer generated random number generated list

Summary
Brief summary
A post operative ileus is a common complication after bowel surgery. This study will examine the usefulness of placing a foley catheter into the stoma during surgery to help prevent this. The idea is that the catheter will prevent swelling and obstruction in the stoma keeping the stoma open.
