After ostomy surgery, you have two options when it comes to pouching systems: a one-piece system and a two-piece system. A 2-piece ostomy bag is a part of the two-piece pouching system, the other part being the skin barrier.
The skin barrier, called a flange, wafer, or baseplate, fits around the stoma and protects the skin. The ostomy bag attaches to the baseplate and collects and stores the urine or stool. The bag is changed as needed, and the wafer generally stays in place for up to five days. Two-piece ostomy systems work with colostomies, urostomies, and ileostomies and are practical for those who change their pouch frequently.
Two-piece ostomy pouches are available in drainable and closed versions. Depending on the frequency of the output, one can choose between the two options.
Opens at the bottom when emptying waste, this drainable pouch is most suitable for colostomies and ileostomies. The integrated Lock 'n Roll Microseal closure with plastic interlocking fasteners creates a secure closure. Features AF300 filter for slow release and deodorization of gas from the bag.
