Alternative approach to stoma, Enjoy Life
No one enjoys walking around with an external pouch filled with feces for 3-6 months. the diverting stoma pouch is used for most patients after colorectal surgery. CG-100 is a temporary internal bypass, designed for comfortable and easy recovery.

Colorectal Surgery, Anastomosis and External Bypass
Colorectal surgery typically includes the procedure of colorectal anastomosis — a diseased segment of the colon or rectum is removed and the two healthy segments are reconnected. Leakage of colon content from the anastomotic site into the abdominal cavity is a dangerous complication, increasing hospitalization time, re-operation and even mortality. To prevent leakage, surgeons often use an external bypass, also called a diverting stoma. This connects a loop of bowel to a pouch on the patient’s abdomen, which collects the patient’s feces. The temporary stoma is removed in a second surgical procedure, after 3-6 months and completion of anastomotic healing. This is currently considered the standard treatment for almost 70% of rectal and high-risk colon procedures. New approaches are needed to satisfy the needs for a short- term temporary bypass.
A Diverting Stoma –Gold Standard but involves Discomfort and great Risks

Given the important benefits, living with a diverting stoma can be overwhelming and uncomfortable. The flow of stool into the pouch takes place spontaneously, with no patient control, so the stoma requires special care and attention – attaching, cleaning and draining the pouch and the surrounding skin. There are risks for leakage, potential noticeable bulges under a person’s clothing, as well as adjustments in social, day-to-day, physical activities and sexual routine.
After the healing period, a second operation is performed to reconnect the intestines and remove the pouch, requiring additional hospitalization and recuperation.

The diverting stoma is currently the standard treatment following colorectal surgery.

The CG-100 clinical study is underway at select sites.
