NE81.1/T81.3 Disruption of operation wound, not elsewhere classified



Disruption of operation wound, not elsewhere classified is caused by a variety of factors including poor surgical technique, improper wound closure, inadequate sanitation of the wound, and inadequate post-operative care.


Diagnosis is made based on the patient’s clinical history, physical examination, and laboratory tests. Additionally, imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans may be used to identify any infection or tissue damage.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis includes infection, tissue necrosis, and wound dehiscence.


Treatment depends on the cause of the disruption and can include antibiotics, wound debridement, and surgical repair.


The prognosis is good if the wound is treated promptly and properly. However, if the wound is left untreated for too long, the patient may experience complications such as infection, tissue necrosis, and poor healing.
