National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) publishes guidance document for open abdomen management

The UK NICE institute has updated its guidance document regarding open abdomen management.

Remarkably, the document discusses open abdominal wounds but fails to mention ‘abdominal compartment syndrome’ but only conditions often associated with it such as damage control surgery and abdominal sepsis. According to the document, several options to manage the open abdomen are available and negative pressure wound therapy is considered safe.
