Abstract

The recent history, indications, physiologic objectives, and technical aspects of staged laparotomy are discussed in this overview. While postinjury refractory coagulopathy is the most common scenario for this life-saving concept, there are many other potential applications during both emergency and elective procedures in the neck, chest, pelvis, and extremities as well as the abdomen.
