Cutaneous Ureterostomy


It is a kind of urostomy that is known as cutaneous ureterostomy. While performing cutaneous ureterostomy, the surgeon detaches the ureter from the bladder and then brings either one or both ends of the ureter to the surface of the abdomen. A stoma or a hole is created in the abdomen that is a reddish, moist abdominal protrusion that helps in retaining sensation. It is a process of urinary diversion that collects urine in a bag.
