AIM: To present the Danish Stoma Database Capital Region with clinical variables related to stoma creation including colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy. METHOD: The stomatherapists in the Capital Region of Denmark developed a database covering patient identifiers, interventions, conditions, short-term outcome, long-term outcome and known major confounders. The completeness of data was validated against the Danish National Patient Register. RESULTS: In 2013, five hospitals included data from 1123 patients who were registered during the year. The types of stomas formed from 2007 to 2013 showed a variation reflecting the subspecialization and surgical techniques in the centres. Between 92 and 94% of patients agreed to participate in the standard programme aimed at handling of the stoma and more than 88% of patients having planned surgery had the stoma site marked pre-operatively. CONCLUSION: The database is fully operational with high data completeness and with data about patients with a stoma from before surgery up to 12 months after surgery. The database provides a solid basis for professional learning, clinical research and benchmarking.
