DOCUMENT INFO
Description: If spontaneous (nonoperative) closure does not occur in 5 to 6 weeks, it is unlikely to occur and an operation may be required several months later.1 This case study of a patient with a postoperatively colocutaneous fistula describes efforts to facilitate wound healing by autologous platelet-rich fibrin glue. Fibrin sealants have been used extendedly for the management of stable enterocutaneous fistulas; closure time was significantly reduced and oral feeding was resumed faster.3 Autologous fibrin glues have the advantage of being biocompatible, biodegradable, and have a lower risk of viral transmission.
