Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftReviewForskningpeer review


Closure of an emergency abdominal midline laparotomy is related to potentially serious complications. Main concerns are surgical site infection, wound dehiscence and incisional hernia. In this review, new studies and guidelines are summed up to a set of recommendations applicable to the Danish surgical departments. Surgical strategies concerning primary closure of an emergency laparotomy as well as a strategy towards wound dehiscence are suggested. Suture techniques, negative pressure wound therapy and reinforcement of the abdominal wall with mesh are the topics reviewed.
