Ostomy refers to a procedure in which an artificial opening, called
a stoma, is created to enable elimination of bodily discharge. The
stoma is often created in the abdominal area but dependent on the
root cause it is either the colon, ileum or bladder that is impacted.
Different outputs require different solutions.
