Abstract

The principles of damage control laparotomy (DCL) in the trauma setting are well described. Although the indications for this technique vary among care providers, it is agreed that this approach revolutionized the management of critically injured patients [1, 2]. Overall, about 10–15% of all laparotomies for trauma are managed with damage control techniques [3].
