Caption: Leaking ileostomy after laparotomy. Close-up of the abdomen of a patient with a leaking ileostomy (left) after laparotomy surgery to treat ischemic bowel. Here, negative-pressure wound healing devices (round, centre and bottom) can be seen in place, along with a gastric/jejunal (GJ) tube (clear, upper right). Ischemia is a reduction in blood supply to a tissue or organ. Bowel ischemia can lead to inflammation and injury of the intestine. Laparotomy is a surgical procedure involving a large incision through the abdominal wall to gain access into the abdominal cavity. Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) draws out excess fluid from the wound, increases blood flow to the area and promotes wound healing.
