I believe the correct spelling is “parastomal hernia”, and is also called an “ostomy hernia” or a “stoma hernia”.
It’s a specific type of hernia that can develop around a stoma due to weaknesses in the abdomen wall. It’s not too uncommon for ostomy patients, but the best tactic is to avoid one altogether. The link below on OWM states that about 30% of stomas experience some level of hernia, and its most common among colostomies.
Here are multiple resources you can read about parastomal hernia:
