Breve resumen: Ostomía terminal

¿Qué es una ostomía terminal?

El aparato digestivo descompone los alimentos y elimina los deshechos, pero a veces no funciona como debería funcionar. Cuando ocurre esto, los cirujanos pueden hacer un procedimiento llamado "ostomía".

En una ostomía terminal, el cirujano extirpa o extrae la zona problemática del intestino. Luego, hace llegar el extremo sano del intestino hasta una abertura hecha en la pared del vientre. Cose mediante puntos el extremo del intestino a la piel para crear un estoma. Se coloca una funda o bolsa sobre la parte exterior del estoma para recoger los deshechos. Las mucosidades que se formen en el intestino más allá del punto del estoma saldrán a través del ano (por donde suelen salir las heces).
