摘要：Vacuum sealing drainage (VSD) is frequently used in abdominal surgeries.However,relevant guidelines are rare.Chinese Trauma Surgeon Association organized a committee composed of 28 experts across China in July 2017,aiming to provide an evidence-based recommendation for the application of VSD in abdominal surgeries.Eleven questions regarding the use of VSD in abdominal surgeries were addressed:(1) which type of materials should be respectively chosen for the intraperitoneal cavity,retroperitoneal cavity and superficial incisions? (2) Can VSD be preventively used for a high-risk abdominal incision with primary suture? (3) Can VSD be used in severely contaminated/infected abdominal surgical sites? (4) Can VSD be used for temporary abdominal cavity closure under some special conditions such as severe abdominal trauma,infection,liver transplantation and intra-abdominal volume increment in abdominal compartment syndrome? (5) Can VSD be used in abdominal organ inflammation,injury,or postoperative drainage? (6) Can VSD be used in the treatment of intestinal fistula and pancreatic fistula? (7) Can VSD be used in the treatment of intra-abdominal and extra-peritoneal abscess? (8) Can VSD be used in the treatment of abdominal wall wounds,wound cavity,and defects? (9) Does VSD increase the risk of bleeding? (10) Does VSD increase the risk of intestinal wall injury? (11) Does VSD increase the risk of peritoneal adhesion?Focusing on these questions,evidence-based recommendations were given accordingly.VSD was strongly recommended regarding the questions 2-4.Weak recommendations were made regarding questions 1 and 5-11.Proper use of VSD in abdominal surgeries can lower the risk of infection in abdominal incisions with primary suture,treat severely contaminated/infected surgical sites and facilitate temporary abdominal cavity closure.
