Dealing with the most difficult situations in abdominal surgery

Rifat - Latifi, John A. Stroster

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter will emphasize some of the most complicated situations faced by general surgeons including enterocutaneous fistulas, necrotizing soft tissue infections, postoperative anastomotic leaks, and delayed recognition of intestinal ischemia in order to shed light on how we surgeons handle serious situations. It will refrain from covering most of the cross-over between abdominal surgery and oncologic or trauma causes.
