ileostomy

[ill-ee-OSS-tuh-me] an operation in which the end of last part of the small intestine, the ileum, is brought out through an opening called a stoma on the abdomen (belly) to allow feces (stool) to leave the body. It is sometimes done after part of the intestine has been removed. Stool that leaves the body through this opening tends to be unformed or liquid because it hasn’t been through the large intestine.
