[Staged treatment of patients with external small bowel fistulas].

Abstract

Results of staged treatment of small bowel fistulas in 115 patients were analyzed. Staged treatment of 21.7% of patients resulted in healing the fistulas without operations. Modern methods of nutritional maintenance were shown to allow surgical restorative treatment to be performed in the optimal period in 82.2% of patients. The number of postoperative complications and lethality rate were reduced to 5.6%, general lethality to 7.8%.
