          Abstract

          A temporary stoma is a relatively common procedure at the neonatal age for a number of disorders. At birth, the enteric nervous system (ENS) is not fully developed; temporary colostomy causes morphological changes in the ENS. We studied whether transection of bowel or deprivation of stool is responsible for these changes. Moreover, reversibility of the ENS changes after stoma closure was investigated.
