Abstract

Reductions in mortality were reported with negative pressure wound therapy for laparostomy. However, some authors have voiced concern over an increased risk of enteroatmospheric fistulae. In this retrospective study, we hypothesized that surgical and metabolic derangements could increase the incidence of enteroatmospheric fistulae. We aimed to assess our experience and report long-term outcomes.
