Challenges in Colostomy Management

Challenges in Colostomy Management

  • Patients suffering from Colorectal Cancer, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, amongst other intestinal ailments, inevitably require ostomy surgery
  • Ostomy results in loss of sphincter control and redirects the output from the intestines to a surgically-created opening on the abdomen called a stoma.
  • The quality of life of ostomates becomes substantially poor due to the loss of continence – a disrupted life centred around their stoma, immense emotional and psycho-social stress, issues in intimacy
  • Currently, the only option for ostomates is a bag that is stuck around the stoma and collects the faeces as it comes
  • Further, these bags require change every 3-5 days and are prone to leakage and cause skin problems like excoriation, dermatitis, and inflammation

  • Incontinence
  • Skin Excoriation
  • Disrupted Life
  • Social Stigma
