Ileostomy is a small intestinal tract that is surgically implanted. In the ileostomy of the narrow intestine in the ileum region, it is divided into two parts. The first part of the intestine comes out of the abdominal skin and goes out and forms a stoma. In the case of permanent ileostomy, the remaining parts of the digestive system also come out of the abdomen.
In this case, the stool is removed from the stoma, and the patient should use special bags to collect stool because stomach excretion from stoma is not in these voluntary conditions.
The feces of the ileostomy output are usually fluid and soft and, given the fact that they contain intestinal enzymes, it is harmful to the skin surrounding the stoma.
