ConvaTec Launches SUR-FIT Natura(R) Low-Pressure Adaptor
Date:10/28/2008

New Device Designed to Minimize Discomfort and Pain Following Ostomy Surgery

SKILLMAN, N.J., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec, a world-leading manufacturer of ostomy and wound care products, announced today the launch of SUR-FIT Natura(R) Low-Pressure Adaptor, a new post-operative ostomy device. The product offers clinicians and ostomy patients a simple and gentle solution to manage abdominal pain in the days and weeks following surgery.

The SUR-FIT Natura(R) Low-Pressure Adaptor is a flexible ring that goes between the skin barrier and pouch to create added finger space allowing the user to attach the pouch without contact with the abdomen. The result is that the fingers absorb the pressure required to snap the pouch to the skin barrier because the connecting takes place away from the skin.

"The development of SUR-FIT Natura(R) Low-Pressure Adaptor came from listening to the unique needs of ostomy patients and clinicians following surgery," said Nino Pionati, President, Ostomy Care Business Unit at ConvaTec. "We believe that this product addresses an unmet need in the care and comfort of the ostomy patient and also allows them to gain confidence in using the product after surgery."

Ostomy surgery is a procedure to remove parts or sections of the small or large intestine due to Crohn's disease(1), ulcerative colitis(2), trauma, cancer or other pathological conditions. A new exit for effluent (digested food or fecal matter) is then created with the remaining intestine.(1,2) After surgery, patients typically wear an ostomy device -- a skin barrier that adheres around the stoma and a pouch that collects the effluent.(2) The SUR-FIT Natura(R) Low-Pressure Adaptor is designed to absorb the pressure required to snap the pouch to the skin barrier because the connecting takes place away from the skin.

Abdominal tenderness after ostomy surgery may last for days or weeks, depending on the patient and the surgical procedure performed.
