Artificial anus - Definition


Definition


An artificial anus redirects the fecal matter contained in the large intestine toward a bag when the digestive system is no longer capable of correctly accomplishing the evacuation of fecal matter. It is placed during a surgical intervention called a colostomy where the colon is deviated toward a bag placed near the abdomen. The artificial anus can be temporary, notably in the treatment of occlusions, or definitive if the lesions are irreparable, as is the case with certain digestive cancers.
