It’s in French but google can translate like I did below for you
Here’s what they say about it:
The TIES® solution allows the patient to live without the constant wearing of an ostomy bag.
It is a titanium implant with a cover, implanted in place of the conventional stoma. The cover has a trap door that allows waste to be removed without removing the cover. A bag holder that does not touch the skin allows the bag to be secured when waste needs to be disposed of. It also prevents skin complications.
What are the limits ?
Currently, and although the TIES has received the CE mark (meaning it has met the regulatory safety requirement for Class IIb medical devices, including clinical trials in humans), it is not yet available on the market and is implantable only for permanent ileostomies. Nevertheless, the use in colostomized patients is under study.
Regarding the placement of the implant, it does not involve any more pre- and post-operative risks than a classic ostomy.
Currently OstomyCure has just started an additional clinical trial in hospitals in Sweden and the UK. The study is being carried out by Dr David Jayne in Leeds, Dr Ed Westcott in St Thomas in London, Dr Smolarek in Plymouth and they are talking to several other centers.
I think I told you pretty much everything about this system which seems to me to be a major advance in the field but if you are in need of information, do not hesitate to visit their site: https://ostomycure.com/ and to contact them, they will be happy to answer your questions (if you speak English of course 😊!)....
I wish some professional would explain to us :):)
