A wound that splits open after surgery on the abdomen or pelvis


Sometimes, surgical wounds may split open after surgery, even when the surgeon sewed the wound up correctly. This may happen when wounds aren't healing properly, or because of problems like severe coughing or vomiting. Average or lower rates of surgical wound splitting may be a sign of that the hospital's health care professionals are performing well at monitoring and treating wounds.
