Ileostomy is a surgical procedure involving the removal of a part of the ileum or small intestine and the cut end is then diverted into an artificially created hole in the abdominal wall. Ileostomy pouches are either one- or two-piece system and drainable therefore allowing the user to empty it out easily. Appliances needed for ileostomy include ileostomy drainable bags, pouches, flanges, barriers and accessories all of which are designed to provide maximum security and protection. Skin protectants are also needed to ensure there is no irritation because of the digestive enzymes and acids within the ileum.
