Technique Tips


A hydrocolloid ostomy barrier ring applied to the base of the Wound Crown can be helpful in obtaining a good seal.

The hydrocolloid ring should intrude inside the device base so a narrow ring can be seen when viewed from above.


Ostomy stoma paste can also be applied to the inside Wound Crown base to help obtain a seal.
