Subtopics

Fistulas with high amount of drainage (i.e., with high-output), or fistulas that appear in an open abdomen with no overlying soft tissue (i.e., enteroatmospheric fistulas, or EAFs) can pose a real challenge to wound and ostomy specialists. This topic illustrates a case in which a fistula isolation device was used in conjunction with negative pressure wound therapy to manage a high-output EAF. The topic also provides a summarized review on treatment of enterocutaneous and enteroatmospheric fistulas.
