Background Urostomy is a surgical procedure that detours or diverts urine away form a diseased or defective bladder. The bladder can be removed and the urine is passed out of the body through an opening (stoma) in the stomach. People with urostomy will not be able to start and stop urine coming out through the stoma, so a urostomy bag will be fitted to collect the urine as it comes out.

A urostomy bag consists of an adhesive, which is attached to the skin around the stoma and a bag connected to the adhesive to collect the urine.

It is very important the standard is high on these products; otherwise the user (urostomy-patient) will experience lots of problems with the skin around the stoma.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: SenSura Uro
The test product is a CE-marked non-sterile one-piece urostomy multi-chamber bag with the SenSura adhesive.
Device: SenSura Uro
The test product is a CE-marked non-sterile one-piece urostomy multi-chamber bag with the SenSura adhesive.
Other Names:
  • SenSura URO Standard Wear 1-piece bag
  • Product number:1438298
Active Comparator: hollister Uro
The comparator product is CE-marked and non-sterile and produced for urostomy operated. It is a flat one-piece urostomy product, Hollister Moderma Flex Urostomy beige, Cut-to-Fit Bag, flat adhesive
Device: Hollister
The comparator product is CE-marked and non-sterile and produced for urostomy operated. It is a flat one-piece urostomy product, Hollister Moderma Flex Urostomy beige, Cut-to-Fit Bag, flat adhesive.
Other Names:
  • Moderma Flex Urostomy, Cut-to-fit bag, flat adhesive.
  • product id : 29100

Detailed Description:

In this trial we are comparing two types of urostomy bags - the SenSura 1-piece and Hollisters Moderma Flex.

Both products are CE-marked, meaning that they are safe and approved in use for people with an urostomy.

Population 30 urostomy operated people from UK will participate in the trial. Only participants who normally use a flat 1-piece urostomy bag can participate. It is very important that the participants keep their normal use- and change pattern. Furthermore they need to be over 18 years old, have had the urostomy for more than 3 months, the size of the urostomy shall be between 15-55 mm, otherwise the bag will not fit them and then they should be able to handle the bags themselves and be willing to use the two products tested in the trial.
