What is Granulation Tissue?
Granulation tissue (also known as over-granulation tissue, GT, hyper-granulation tissue, granulomas and proud flesh) forms during a normal phase of wound healing.
When a tube, catheter or jewerley is placed in a stoma, the body can get “stuck” in the proliferation phase of tissue building, attempting to heal around the foreign object. This results in excessive tissue growth.
Granulation tissue comes in many forms. It is delicate, can bleed easily and can be painful.
