Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Intervention - Ileostomy through umbilicus instead of through a standard right lower quadrant position. This will be performed by an experienced colorectal surgeon. This will be performed one at the time of their surgery, usually as a defunctioning stoma for a bowel resection. This will be performed in a standard operating theatre, the only difference being the site of stoma placement, each patient would be receiving an ileostomy regardless of which group they are randomised to. They will be followed up during their hospital admission and in outpatient department following their discharge. A one of quality of life questionaire will be performed after one month to compare impacts of stoma placement on quality of life.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of the study is to investigate the impact that ileostomy site placement has on patient quality of life. This study compares the traditional ileostomy in the right lower quadrant to a minimally invasive ileostomy formed through the umbilicus. The hypothesis is that a minimally invasive ileostomy through the umbilicus is better for the patient as:
- There is no damage to the muscle when forming this umbilicus
- It's midline position makes it easier for patient's to manage
- There is not an extra incision made for this (umbilicus is a common site for port placement during laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery
- Patient's are able to sleep on either side due to the midline position
