The authors analyze 54 reinterventions in abdominal surgery in 46 patients, and present the lesions found on reintervention. In one out of two cases there is an intra-peritoneal septic focus. In more than 25 p. 100 of the cases the lesions were multiple. They oppose the localized septic foci and the occlusions which are of good prognosis, with the diffuse septic foci, acute pancreatitis and fistulae whose course is more often than not fatal.
