Forget the Pouch, Enjoy Life

No one enjoys walking around with an external pouch filled with feces for 3-6 months. Unfortunately, the diverting stoma pouch is used for most patients after colorectal surgery.
CG-100 can change all that, and help you resume normal life after surgery, with an advanced internal bypass, for a more comfortable and easier 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 2-6 months and completion of anastomotic healing.

This is currently considered the standard treatment for almost 70% of rectal and high-risk colon procedures. Different approaches have been attempted for supporting the anastomosis site during the post-surgery period, however until now, none of these methods have offer clinical proof of successfully protecting the anastomotic site.

A Diverting Stoma – Intense Discomfort, Heavy Risks

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 form of treatment following colorectal surgery.

CG-100 – Helping You Resume Normal Life
Colospan CG-100 is an innovative bypass device which reduces complications* during recovery from colorectal surgery, while avoiding the use of a diverting stoma pouch. CG-100 provides a superior, effective and safe alternative for the stoma, and improves the outcomes of colorectal surgery.
Why You Should Consider Colospan’s CG-100
CG-100 does not require a separate operative procedure for removal, unlike the diverting stoma and various other solutions.
CG-100 can be easily removed at any time, according to the physician’s assessment of the healing process. It is usually removed after ~10 days, when the risk for leakage has diminished. If necessary, the device can be remain in place longer than 10 days to provide extended protection, for continued healing.

Colospan’s CG-100 provides protection of a large area, both above and below the anastomosis, offering full coverage of the entire colon segment at risk during its healing period.
