A combination of previously known techniques for retrograde opacification of ileostomies and colostomies has been used successfully in neonates and infants. This combination of techniques used on very small stomas allows easy retrograde opacification of bowel. The technique uses a small feeding tube, a larger Foley catheter with an inflatable balloon, and a Lucite compression device, the construction and use of which are discussed here.
