Enterocutaneous Fistula: 1

A D V E R T I S E M E N T

   
 

A 48-year-old woman underwent multiple abdominal operations following a hysterectomy complicated by bowel injury. She developed a chronic enterocutaneous fistula from the mid-small bowel to the midline incision. Studies revealed no distal obstruction, inflammatory bowel disease or foreign body. Her nutritional status was optimized and the patient was taken to the operating room for resection of the fistula.
