  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

This review aims to determine the outcomes of the planned relaparotomy strategy versus conventional, on demand relaparotomy strategy in the management of secondary peritonitis. The specific outcomes measured were 30-day mortality as primary outcome, per events and per patients complication type and rates, and the economic impact of planned vs on-demand strategy as secondary outcomes.
