The Problem

parastomal hernia

A parastomal hernia is a common complication that occurs in up to 70 % of patients in the first 3 years after initial stoma formation. This can result in pain, bowel obstruction, cosmetic and social problems. Therefore, further surgical intervention is frequently required. Surgical procedures for repairing parastomal hernias are difficult and associated with a high failure rate.

The Solution

implanted koring®

The KORING® is designed to prevent parastomal hernia after stoma surgery. Because of its unique shape, the minimal surface area and maximum flexibility implantation is simple at the initial stoma formation. The KORING® is flexible but non dilatable. This feature assures maintenance of the stoma diameter and prevents weakening of the abdominal wall and possible formation of a parastomal hernia over time.
