Table 2 Postoperative surgical complications

From: Prone positioning in acute respiratory distress syndrome after abdominal surgery: a multicenter retrospective study

  Prone n = 36 Supine n = 62 p
Scar dehiscence, n (%) 3 (8) 15 (24) 0.06
Abdominal compartment syndrome, n (%) 1 (3) 6 (10) 0.26
Stoma leakage, n (%) 1 (3) 13 (2) 1.00
Stoma necrosis, n (%) 3 (8) 3 (5) 0.67
Scar necrosis, n (%) 1 (3) 1 (2) 1.00
Wound infection, n (%) 6 (17) 5 (8) 0.20
Displacement of a peritoneal drainage system 0 (0) 1 (2) 1.00
Displacement of a biliary drainage system 0 (0) 1 (2) 1.00
Removal of a gastrostomy feeding tube 0 (0) 0 (0) 1.00
Removal of a jejunostomy feeding tube 1 (3) 0 (0) 0.37
Digestive fistula 3 (8) 11 (18) 0.24
  1. NB: one patient could have several complications. This explains that the total (19 for prone group and 56 for supine group) may be different than the number of primary endpoint (define as “at least one surgical complication”)
