About Enteric Fistulas
Acelity is the exclusive distributor of the FISTULA SOLUTION® fistula isolation devices that help clinicians and surgeons manage patients with enteric fistulas.
Fistulas are an abnormal connection between two or more structures or spaces. Fistulas are usually the result of injury or surgery, but also can result from infection or inflammation. Managing patients with fistulas is challenging and represents a significant unmet need.
The Science Behind Our Products
Our solutions are built on deep scientific expertise, supported by a large body of clinical evidence.
Fistulas are an abnormal connection between two anatomical areas with the body (inside the body habitus), which do not normally (routinely) conjoin. An example of fistula formation between different functioning organs are enteric fistulas, which are abnormal connections between the gastrointestinal tract and other abdominal organs, chest, or skin. The location of drains, tubes and stoma contribute to the challenge. Acelity offers three customizable devices to isolate and divert effluent from enteroatmospheric fistulas, enterocutaneous fistulas, or an ostomy close to an incision.
