[Procedures of temporary wall closure in abdominal trauma and sepsis].

Temporary abdominal closure methods differ mainly between vacuum-assisted and conventional approaches. Each method has its indications. Vacuum-assisted methods seem to be superior especially for trauma indications--in terms of lethality, the possibility of secondary closure during primary hospital stay, and frequency of enterocutaneous fistulas. Skin-only closure might be used as a short-term application (e.g. when damage control closure is needed), and the Bogota bag silo gives space to protruding bowels in pending or manifest abdominal compartment syndrome. Temporary fascial mesh closure enables repetitive laparotomies through the mesh, thus sparing the fascia. For that reason it is to be preferred, especially for its good practicability in clinical situations and on mission abroad.
