Abstract: The management of the colon injury remains controversial in spite of a number of divergent reports during the past decade. Previously surgeons were reluctant to do primary anastomosis but now-a-days they are doing primary repair with good results. The present study is designed to see the early outcomes of primary repair in colonic injury. This prospective observational study performed at Dhaka Medical College Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh from January 2013 to June 2013 with allocation of 50 patients with colonic injury who underwent laparotomy with primary repair of that injury in the department of Casualty Surgery. A primary repair was performed after freshening the edges or by resection and primary anastomosis with 3.0 round-body Vicryl by single layer extra mucosal interrupted suture. Data processed using software SPSS version 16.0. For all analytical results a p value <0.05 was considered significant. In this study the commonest site of injury were transvers colon and sigmoid colon 38.0% in each. Out of 50 respondents, 5(10.0%) developed burst abdomen, 1(2.0%) developed entero-cutaneous fistula with none had paralytic ileus or septicaemia or pelvic collection. No mortality observed. This study showed that the increasing in colon injury scale (CIS) score culminate into increasing rate of postoperative complication & post operative complications were more at left colon (24%). On basis of our findings, we recommend the primary repair is a safe and effective surgical technique for addressing the large gut injury. Unnecessary proximal diversions should be avoided. According to our experience, we believe that the policy of primary repair of colon injuries can be applied more liberally in majority of patients with high success rate.
