If your bladder is removed, you will need a new way of collecting urine. One way is through a urostomy. The surgeon makes an opening (stoma) on the wall of the abdomen. A bag can be fixed around the opening to collect the urine.
Opening onto the surface of the abdomen (tummy) that is used to drain urine after the bladder has been removed. A bag is worn over the opening to collect the urine. This operation is sometimes called an ileal conduit because a piece of small bowel (ileum) is usually used to carry the urine from the ureters to the opening.
an opening of the urinary system (made after the bladder has been removed)
a surgically created opening-on the abdomen- that allows urine to flow out of the body
a surgical procedure that diverts urine away from a diseased or defective bladder
a surgical procedure that removes a diseased or damaged bladder and creates a channel (urinary diversion) for urine to flow to the outside of the body through an opening in the abdomen
a surgical procedure to create a new opening for urine drainage
a surgical procedure when there is a need for the urine to be diverted away from the bladder due to infection, congenital disorder, injury or for whatever reason
Surgically-created opening from the urinary system to the outside of the body.
A surgically constructed method of bypassing a dysfunctional or removed bladder in order to discharge urine. Most commonly a conduit is surgically created from a section of the ileum and the ureters are connected to it. The open end of the conduit (ileal conduit) is brought to the surface of the abdomen to create a stoma.
A surgically constructed connection between the urinary tract and the skin, usually performed in a patient whose bladder has been removed. Permits the passage of urine from the body.
An opening through the skin to the urinary tract to allow urine to drain when normal voiding is not possible.
(yur-os-tuh-me) : surgery to divert urine through a new passage and then through an opening in the abdomen. In a continent urostomy, the urine is stored inside the body and drained a few times a day through a tube placed into an opening called a stoma.
An operation to create an opening from inside the body to the outside, making a new way to pass urine.
surgical connection (with a piece of ileum) from the ureters to the mid-abdomen to form a stoma for discharge of urine after removal or dysfunction of the bladder.
A urostomy is a stoma (artificial opening) for the urinary system. A urostomy is made in cases where long-term drainage of urine through the bladder and urethra is not possible, e.g. after extensive surgery or in case of obstruction.
