Complications of open peritoneal drainage in nine dogs with gastrointestinal leakage



Complications of open peritoneal drainage in nine dogs with gastrointestinal leakage



Irish Veterinary Journal 56(7): 354-360



Open peritoneal drainage (OPD) was performed in nine dogs with generalised bacterial peritonitis. The diagnosis of peritonitis was confirmed by cytological examination of the abdominal fluid demonstrating degenerate or toxic neutrophils with intracellular bacteria. The most common reason for peritonitis was gastrointestinal leakage due to surgical wound dehiscence. In each case, the cause of peritonitis was corrected and open peritoneal drainage was performed.
