Abstract

The aim of a tension-free closure was achieved using a one- or two-stage abdominal reconstruction algorithm. A lateral release of fascia avoids the need for artificial dermal substitutes and can be used in the presence of a stoma. Multidisciplinary team decision making improves primary fascial closure rate and minimises the risk of enterocutaneous fistulae and incisional hernia formation. Level of Evidence: Level IV, therapeutic study
