An ostomy is an opening in the abdominal wall through which the large or small intestines are brought out. Waste material then passes out of the ostomy and is collected in a pouching system or pouch which comes attached to the neighboring skin.

An ostomy, also known as a stoma, can either be temporary or permanent. The procedure is usually carried out on patients who have gastrointestinal injuries or complications.
