Technique Tips

Barrier ring

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

The ostomy barrier ring should intrude inside the device base so a narrow section of the ring can be seen when viewed from above.

Barrier ring inside

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