"Bogota bags" are often used for temporary abdominal closure after damage control or staged laparotomy for trauma or release of abdominal compartment syndrome. After placement of the Bogota bag serial operative closures are required to return abdominal contents to their original location before definitive closure. Unnecessary operative procedures may be avoided when binder clips are used to facilitate the gradual approximation of the wound edges before abdominal closure.
