Press Release: OMMC Stoma Clinic for the Manilans
October 11, 2002
The Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC) started operating a stoma clinic last October 7, 2002, with a projected regular schedule of every Monday, 1- 4 pm, at the OMMC Outpatient Department. The stoma clinic will cater to OMMC patients and indigent Manilans with stomas.
What is a stoma? It is an opening created by a surgeon on the surface of the human body using part of a hollow organ like the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, and respiratory tract. Common examples of stomas include a colostomy (originating from the large intestines discharging feces - most common), ileostomy (from the small intestine), ileal conduit (discharging urine), and tracheal stoma. Stomas are created to allow egress and/or ingress of substances into/from the hollow organs as part of a life-saving/life-maintaining procedure. The most common conditions leading to stoma creation are cancers, trauma, inflammatory diseases, and congenital disorders. [more]
