The article presents a retrospective analysis of the results of surgical treatment of 131 premature infants with congenital malformations and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, which required the imposition of various types of enterostomy from 2008 to 2019. The study showed that performing a single-barreled enterostomy, in contrast to a double terminal enterostomy, was accompanied by significantly fewer complications (parastomy dermatitis, evagination, prolapse and osteopenia). Also more comfortable conditions were provided for stoma care in the postoperative period in premature babies.
