Abstract
OBJECTIVES: To determine the frequency of common factors leading to re-laparotomy in secondary peritonitis.
PATIENTS & METHODS: This study was carried out at Department of Surgery Chandka Medical College Hospital Larkana for 01 year duration. Consecutive patients admitted with secondary peritonitis who underwent re-laprotomy were included in the study. Statistical analysis was carried out using SPSS version 17.00.
RESULTS: Total of 139 patients with secondary peritonitis were included in the study. Most common factor leading to re-laparotomy was intra abdominal collection i-e in 64 (46.04%) followed by anastomotic / repair site leakage in 40(28.77), enterocutaneous fistulas in 30 (21.58%) and haemorrhage in 5(3.59%).
CONCLUSION: In our study we found intra-abdominal collection to be the most frequent factor leading to re-laparotomy. We suggest future researches with larger sample sizes to provide more conclusive results.
