Enterocutaneous fistula (ECF) poses a supreme challenge for the surgeons associated with abdominal sepsis, fluid electrolyte imbalance and undernutrition. Individual prognostic stratification is pivotal in the clinical management. Presepsin is a novel biomarker showing diagnostic and prognostic value in sepsis. We aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of presepsin in ECF.
