Abstract: Aim/Background: The prospective study is planned to compare results of: Graham’s omentopexy v/s figure of eight stitch in case of peptic perforation.
Material and Method: A study of 50 patients admitted with peptic perforations at J.L.N. Medical College & Associated group of Hospitals, Ajmer were undertaken from January 2012 to December 2013.The patients suspected of peptic perforations undergoing emergency laparotomy were divided into 2 groups (Graham’s omentopexy and Figure of eight closure) of 25 patients each based on the technique of Simple Randomization.
Results: In our study figure of 8 stitches with omentopexy is have less postoperative complications compare with Gramh’s omentopexy (leak 1 v/s 3, wound infection 4 v/s 8, fistula 0 v/s 3, death 1 v/s 2).
Conclusion: Closure by figure of 8 stitch was found to be a superior surgical technique over Graham’s omentopexy for the closure of peptic perforation.
