The first step in caring for your stoma is selecting the proper ostomy system for your unique needs and lifestyle.
In a one-piece system, the pouch and skin barrier are a single unit. Designed for discretion, these systems offer simplicity and flexibility in a low-profile system. They are available in cut-to-fit and pre-cut adhesive types.
In a two-piece system, the pouch and skin barrier are two separate pieces that allow you to change the pouch without removing the skin barrier. With this system, the pouch and skin barrier are coupled together with a plastic ring. You can hear and feel the system securely lock into place.
ConvaTec's traditional SUR-FIT Natura® two-piece system offers a variety of drainable, closed-end and urostomy pouches. Stomahesive® or Durahesive® skin barriers are designed to protect peristomal skin.
With this system, the pouch and skin barrier are coupled together with a foam adhesive ring and "Landing Zone," eliminating the need for rigid plastic coupling rings found in traditional two-piece systems. This foam coupling mechanism is more flexible than traditional systems and has a lower profile under clothing.
The Esteem synergy® ostomy system with Adhesive Coupling Technology™ is available in a wide variety of pouch shapes and sizes. Drainable, closed-end, and urostomy pouches are available. Skin barriers are available in Stomahesive® and Durahesive® technologies.
