Abstract

The degree of damage on the peristomal skin of 42 patients who accepted the uro-stomy was visually and histologically evaluated. The incidence of damages on the areas of the skin where the materials was applied was 85.7%. The occurance of non-active lesions (mainly permanent pigment change) was statistically more significant than the active lesions (mainly redness) [p<0.05]. The incidence of skin lesions using the skin barrier agents was significantly lower statistically than the incidence with the adhesive medication indicating a superior treatment for the skin condition [p<0.05]. Although the gross appearances were normal, the microscopic and electron microscopic evaluations detected chronic damages indicating comparatively evident changes.
The results suggest that these histological evaluations are useful in examining the damage on peristomal skin.
