Mortality rate after acute laparotomy can be reduced

Acute abdomen is a common cause of admission to hospital. Emergency laparotomy is associated with a significant morbidity and mortality due to deranged physiology and surgery-induced stress. Damage control laparotomy is on the rise as an operative strategy for the septic abdomen as well as for trauma laparotomy but lacks definition in the non-trauma setting. Principles of perioperative care in elective surgery are currently applied to the emergency abdominal surgery patients and should be further studied in the future to reduce morbidity and mortality.
