A new surgical repair of enterocutaneous fistula associated with abdominal wound defects is presented. The authors turned over the fasciocutaneous flap from the surrounding skin and sutured the intestinal lumen directly to the cutaneous side of the flap. The method is a risk-free extraperitoneal approach that can be performed using local anesthesia.
