To the Editor.—Regarding our article, "Blowhole Cecostomy for Cecal Decompression" (Arch Surg 110:444, 1975), we would like to call attention to an oversight. An excellent description of a similar operative technique appears in R.B. Turnbull's Atlas of Intestinal Stomas (St Louis, CV Mosby Co, 1967, pp 166-174). This was not referenced in our article and should have been.
