Excessive Wound Fluid Discharge during Retroperitoneal Negative Pressure Wound Therapy


Fankhauser, Christian Daniel; Hermanns, Thomas; Hasse, Barbara; Rancic, Zoran (2017). Excessive Wound Fluid Discharge during Retroperitoneal Negative Pressure Wound Therapy. Annals of Vascular Surgery, 43:314.e1-314.e3.

Abstract

We report a case of a 66-year-old man with an excessive wound fluid discharge during negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in the retroperitoneal space. Creatinine concentration of the unclear fluid and a subsequent late-phase computed tomography confirmed the diagnosis of a urinary fistula. NPWT was terminated, and the patient was successfully treated with a nephrostomy combined with a retrograde double J stent and a Foley catheter.
