Intraperitoneal drains move

Abstract : Introduction The use of surgical drains is the subject of much debate but they continue to be commonly used. The phenomenon of drain migration from their desired position following surgery has not been studied. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of the displacement of surgical drains among patients undergoing abdominal gastrointestinal surgery. Patients and methods We performed a review of all patients who underwent an early CT-scan postoperatively after abdominal gastrointestinal surgery prior to drain mobilization, between January 2013 and April 2016 in the Dijon University Hospital Center. Pre-and intra-operative data (number, type and position of drains) and postoperative data (imaging and evolution) were collected retrospectively. Results This study included 125 patients. Thirty-five (28%) were found to have a displacement of at least one drain from its original position. Forty-one (19.8%) of the 207 studied drains had moved. Postoperative morbidity was not higher in patients with displaced drains (P = 0.51). None of all the studied preoperative and operative factors have been found to be a risk factor for drain displacement. Conclusion Surgical drains displacement is frequently encountered in patients undergoing digestive abdominal surgery. In our experience, this phenomenon does not seem to have any clinical implications. When a benefit is expected from the use of surgical drains, intraperitoneal fixation appears to be necessary.
