Laparotomy was the most frequent method of treatment (83%) Primary laparotomy and drainage with laparotomy groups had similar mortalities (23-24%), while the drainage alone treatment cohort was associated with the highest mortality (60%) with statistical value (p=0.043). Consequently laparotomy is highly protective in terms of survival rate. Stenosis seemed to be statistically associated with drainage. These findings could discourage the use of peritoneal drainage versus a primary laparotomy whenever the clinical conditions of patients allow this procedure.
