Dr D Allard, trauma surgeon, GF Jooste hospital, Cape Town, South Africa

In scarce resource scenarios the 'tapes' from large swabs can be used to tie off bowel lacerations (large and small bowel) during damage control laparotomies. After removal during re-look surgery, the bowel is not necessarily ischaemic and can be primarily repaired. In this instance the patient had sustained a gunshot injury.
