Preliminary Results of a Large Scale Study Show ConvaTec Moldable Technology™ Skin Barriers Help to Prevent and Improve Peristomal Skin Issues in Ostomy Patients
Date:6/23/2011

s in the first arm who completed the study (N=305), most of whom had normal skin at baseline, skin integrity was maintained or improved in nearly all patients (95 percent).  Among patients in the second arm who completed the study (N=140), all of whom had skin issues at baseline, nearly all patients (90 percent) were classified as having normal skin or improved pre-existing lesions by the end of the study period.

Participants who completed the final product evaluation of the study also reported very high levels of satisfaction with ConvaTec Moldable Technology™ Skin Barriers, with both groups combined providing ratings of "excellent" or "good" in excess of 80 percent across all criteria including comfort, ease of molding, ease of application and removal, level of confidence and overall evaluation.

ConvaTec Moldable Technology™ Skin Barriers with Rebounding Memory Technology™ are the only skin barriers with a patented** tri-laminate construction that actively adjusts to the shape and contours of the stoma. ConvaTec Moldable Technology™ Skin Barriers are supported by extensive clinical experience demonstrating their ability to prevent leaks and protect the peristomal skin.(1) (2)

About Peristomal Skin Disorders

Peristomal skin disorders and lesions are common complications affecting people living with an ostomy.(3) While estimates of the incidence of peristomal skin disorders vary, a Danish study showed that these complications can appear in 45 percent of patients living with a stoma.(3)  Research also indicates that peristomal skin disorders negatively impact quality of life, including the psychological and social behavior of patients.(4)(5)

About the SACS™ Instrument

The SACS™ Instrument was developed to help establish a standard universal scale for assessing and classifying peristomal lesions by type of lesion (L) and the topographical location of skin breakdown
