Abstract

The causes and treatment of acute failure of the abdominal incision are reviewed, along with a summary of studies on fascial healing. Emphasis is placed on taking large bites of tissue during closure to prevent dehiscence. Patient-related risk factors are viewed as less important in the causation of wound failure.
