What is a urostomy?
A urostomy is a stoma that is formed to divert urine when the bladder has been removed.
The two ureters from the kidneys are plumbed into a small isolated segment of small bowel, which protrudes out from the abdominal wall. The piece of small bowel used will form the urinary stoma.
A urostomy is almost always situated on the right side of the abdomen, unless for surgical/technical reasons. When the bladder is removed a urostomy will always be permanent.
