Dehiscence exposes underlying bone leading to pain,bone loss, infection and scarring.
Make more than one releasing incision if more access is needed. Excessive crushing, pulling, extremes of temperature, desiccation and harsh chemicals damage tissues and these should be avoided. Toothed forceps and skin hooks are preferred to forceps that crush the wound edges. Use copious irrigation when drilling or cutting bone to decrease bone damage from heat.
Curriculum Outline for General Surgery
Protect soft tissue when drilling from frictional heat and direct trauma. Wounds should never be allowed to desicate. Only physiologic substances should come in contact with the living tissue.
Assist natural clotting processes by applying pressure on a bleeding vessel or a hemostat. Use of heat thermal coagulation. Suture ligation.
Use of vasoconstrictive substances epinephrine 5. It is created by removing tissue in the depths of the wound or by not reapproximating all tissue planes during closure. These are usually filled with blood hematoma which delays healing and predisposes to infection.
In low-resource settings, these different providers may even be represented by the only general surgeon. The critically ill EGS patient requires prompt evaluation and, in many cases, early surgical intervention because of the uniqueness of the surgical acute conditions which are accompanied by high rates of complications and death [ 4 ]. The aforementioned landscape of EGS highlights the difficulty for the emergency general surgeon to plan and endorse appropriate management schemes to optimize timely treatment.
Shortage of trained emergency general surgeons, lack of dedicated teams, shortage of dedicated operating theaters, and delay in surgery as well as non-adherence to clinical guidelines may affect patient outcomes.
The last two decades have witnessed a slow but progressive improvement in the management of emergency general surgery cases. In many institutions, emergency general surgery services have become of critical importance. Many governments have started a systematic effort in reorganizing EGS systems [ 5 , 6 ].

In fact, several countries and governments started to dedicate properly trained personnel in managing EGS patients within dedicated protocols and pathways.
In these hospitals, the general surgeon providing trauma call did all emergent operations except for the central nervous system [ 7 ]. Even if widely recognized, it is not a stand-alone surgical specialty so far. In any case, data indicate that this concept has an impact on morbidity and mortality.
