Endoscopic decompression of the bowel in “toxic megacolon” is presented in two cases as an alternative procedure to Turnbull's technique using multiple bowel fistulas. In our opinion this technique seems to be a substantial improvement in the treatment of “toxic megacolon” and may even help to prevent ileotomycolotomy in some cases.
