Majority of them can be managed conservatively but those who required surgery is a difficult task to perform because of hostile abdomen with dense adhesions, presence of infections, malnutrition, electrolyte imbalance etc and carries significant risk of morbidity and mortality.This study is conducted at Osmania General Hospital, Hyderabad with patients who are referred from outside hospitals and those who developed enterocutaneous fistula postoperatively are included in this study during a period of 14 months from June 2014 to August 2015.Age, Sex, haemoglobin levels, onset and duration of fistula, site of fistula, grade of fistula, output, sepsis, mode of surgery, management options and outcome were studied.
