There are many brands that provide illeostomy pouch bags. As a result, it can prove difficult to discern which brands are worth purchasing and which are not worth purchasing. Careful research is necessary to find out whose claims are correct and whose claims are partially or entirely false. That being said, here are the top four illeostomy pouch brands. All four of these brands produce quality products that work well, are reasonably priced, and have garnered a largely positive response from consumers. The brands include ConvaTec, Coloplast, Cymed, Nu-Hope and ConvaTec.
Top 4 Illeostomy Pouch Brands
- Great products
Ileostomy pouches are designed for a watery output and are made to contain the output, although the design of the pouches vary from those products that are drainable and those that are not drainable. ConvaTec’s illeostomy pouches, like many others, are mostly drainable versions, but closed illeostomy pouches can also be purchased. One product offered by ConvaTec is their one-piece drainable precut two-inch pouch with stomahesive barrier. This product is particularly effective due to its stomahesive barrier, which keeps the output in, and its drainability allowing for easy disposal. Another excellent product made by ConvaTec is their one-piece drainable pouch precut three-quarter inch with a ten-inch opening. All the illeostomy pouches manufactured by ConvaTec are wonderful products, but these two stand out even amongst their other products.
