Ostomy is a surgical procedure which creates an opening in the human body to discharge body wastes. This opening which protrudes from the abdominal wall is called as the stoma. There are two ways ostomy is done, one is permanent and one is temporary. The ostomy procedure helps in the treatment of various diseases of urinary and digestive systems. The organs for ostomy are colon, rectum, bladder, and small intestine. Small Intestine is also called ileum.
In case of ileostomy stoma is created in small intestine (ileum) which bypasses colon, anus, and rectum. An appliance or bag is used to collect all the waste from ileum. Major applications of ileostomy are in the cases when the rectum or colon are not working properly due to diseases like colon cancer, rectal cancer, familial polyposis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), intestinal birth defects, intestinal accident, and intestinal emergency. Ileostomy procedure is carried out in the case of removal of whole or part of colon or large intestine. The global Ileostomy market was valued at US$765.2 mn in 2015 and is anticipated to reach US$1.65 bn by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2016 to 2024.
