The surgical modality of laparoscopic cholecystectomy is now widely accepted, and other intra-abdominal operations are also being done laparoscopically. This paper presents a case of laparoscopy-assisted colostomy in which a complete obstruction of the sigmoid colon associated with intraperitoneal dissemination and massive ascites in the end-stages of ovarian cancer was encountered. This procedure was found to be less invasive and thus should be considered the treatment of choice for an obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract in patients with a poor general status.
