Urostomy Surgery

A urostomy is a type of surgery which enables urine to exit the body through a stoma after removal of a diseased or damaged portion of your urinary tract.1

With a urostomy, urine flows through your stoma as it is produced, so a pouching system is necessary. All urostomy pouches have a drainage tap on the bottom, allowing you to empty the contents of the pouch repeatedly throughout the day.

Ileal Conduit
An ileal conduit is a common type of urostomy. If you need an ileal conduit, your bladder must be removed due to disease or injury.

In this surgery, a part of the small intestine is cut and clamped shut at one end. This creates a new urine container or "bladder." The two ureters (tubes) that carry urine from the kidneys are attached to this new bladder and the open end of the new bladder is then brought out through your abdominal wall, to create a stoma.

Ureterostomy
In an ureterostomy, one or both ureters (urine tubes) are redirected from the kidney through the abdominal wall to form a stoma.
