A stoma is a surgically
created opening onto the surface of the abdomen that allows faces or urine to drain into a bag or other ostomy appliance. Stomas are formed
when patients develop inflammatory bowel disease, bowel or rectal
cancer, bowel obstruction or perforation. They are sometimes used in the
management of incontinence.
