Aurega 1 Urostomy Extra

Aurega 1 Urostomy Extra

The Aurega 1 Urostomy Extra is an extra size version of the standard urostomy bag with a maximum cutting size of 70 mm. The Aurega 1 Urostomy Extra is more suitable for larger urostomies or in the case of hernias and other skin irregularities, where a larger adhesive surface might be needed to provide extra adhesion. The bag have a special double-chamber construction and contain internal non-return valves which prevent urine backflow. Aurega 1 Urostomy Extra is available in both transparent and beige non-woven backing variants. The bag is intended to be used with different types of stoma depending on the place of its emergence – ureter (ureterostomy), bladder (cystostomy), kidneys (nephrostomy), small intestine (ileostomy) or esophagus (salivary gland fistula).

Non return valves and double-chamber construction

Aurega Urostomy pouches have a special two-chamber design and contain internal non-return valves located halfway along the bag’s length. Thanks to this, the urine, irrespective of the position of the body and the position of the bag, does not flow back to the urinary fistula. The non-return system in Aurega Urostomy pouches prevents urinary tract infections, and thus, helps avoid the inconvenience associated with them.

Flexible plug outlet

All Aurega urostomy pouches are equipped with a small and safe plug sealing outlet, allowing quick and easy emptying of the bag without detaching it from the skin. Using the flexible plug outlet is extremely simple – the pouch is opened by removing the sealing plug from its outlet. After emptying the pouch of the urine collected in it, it is enough to put the sealing plug back into the bag’s outlet.

The outlet is made of soft silicone, and its small size makes it barely perceptible. An external urine collection bag can be connected to the valve using universal connectors attached to each package of Aurega urostomy pouches.

Thin and elastic flange

Due to the special manufacturing technology the thickness of adhesive in Aurega flanges does not exceed 0.75 mm. Such a small thinness offers extremely high elasticity and allows for better adaptation to the uneven surface of the skin. An accurate filling of microscopic skin folds makes the Aurega ostomy bags remain attached to the body for many days and counteract the intestinal contents leakage by blocking any possible leakage path.

The thinness of the flange allows it to naturally adjust to individual body shapes including hernias, scars and other skin irregularities. The flange’s elastic properties let it stretch and return to its original shape, following the natural movements of the body.

The skin around the stoma should receive special protection and care. For this reason, we only use skin-friendly and gentle hydrocolloids for the production of our flanges. The hydrocolloids contained in Aurega products have a soothing effect on the skin, providing optimal healing conditions in case of skin irritation.

The flange is characterised by high absorption of liquid substances, minimising the risk of maceration of the skin around the stoma. The hydrophobic properties of hydrocolloids guarantee proper maintenance of the adhesive properties – hydrocolloids contained in the outer layer of the flange form a protective barrier against water and other liquid substances, while the inner layer absorbs excess unnecessary moisture present on the skin.

Outer non-woven backing

In the production of Aurega bags we use only specially selected soft and light non-woven fabrics which are skin-friendly and does not cause strong friction with the clothing. The beige material colour has been chosen to ensure the optimal level of discretion by matching the natural skin colour of the user. In the case of beige bags with a viewing window, the double non-woven layer reduces the rustling of the film.

The fabrics used for Aurega bags production are waterproof and offers high breathability, which prevents the formation of sweat on the skin at the place where the bag comes into contact with the body. The hydrophobic properties of the non-woven material allow the bag to dry quickly after swimming or taking a shower.

Viewing window

All Aurega bags with a double-sided non-woven material have a viewing window located on the outer side of the bag. The window allows easy monitoring of the stoma as well as the amount and state of the bag’s content. It is also helpful when attaching the bag, making it easier to precisely match the hole in the flange to the stoma on the body.
