HR Launches New Line of Ostomy Products – Vitus Ostomy Care
HR Pharmaceuticals, Inc. recently announced the launch of a new product line – Vitus Ostomy Care. The complete ostomy accessories line is designed to further protect the stoma and skin while ensuring a tight seal.
With the continued reduction in reimbursement for ostomy supplies, Vitus Ostomy Care aims to provide superior quality ostomy care products at an affordable price.
With an estimated 725,000-1,000,000 individuals in the United States currently living with an ostomy, affordable, quality ostomy care products are vital for patients who may have to pay out-of-pocket for their ostomy supplies.
The most common types of ostomies are:
- Colostomy: A portion of the colon or the rectum is removed and the remaining colon is brought to the abdominal wall and connected to the stoma/opening to help pass the faecal matter to the external pouch.
- Ileostomy: A stoma is created using the small intestine so that waste can bypass the colon and rectum.
- Urostomy: A stoma is created by surgically removing a section at the end of the small bowel (ileum) or at the beginning of the large intestine (cecum), and is relocated as a passageway for urine to pass from the kidneys to the outside of the body.
Choosing the Right Ostomy Accessories
Living with an ostomy may be challenging at times, but with Vitus Ostomy Care, ostomates can “Live Life Freely” and enjoy peace of mind in knowing that our ostomy products allow them to cost-effectively manage their stoma without sacrificing quality.
