Purpose. The operative strategy for left-sided large bowel obstruction remains controversial. Because a safe and definitive single-staged operation that avoided a colostomy would clearly be in the patients' best interest, we conducted a prospective study to compare the efficacy of single-staged surgery (SSS) supplemented by the milking and swabbing technique (MST), with the conventional Hartmann's procedure (HP).
