Retroperitoneal perforation of the duodenum, caused by abdominal trauma, endoscopic examination or diverticulitis, is a serious clinical problem, because of it’s lack of specific symptoms. Surgical treatment is often performed in sepsis. That is why the knowledge of adequate techniques is crucial for surgeons. We would like to present our model of surgical approach, based on several trauma center’s cases. Among the methods and techniques presented we emphasize the duodenal by-pass with bile duct drainage. Post-op cases of gastrojejunal anastomosis’ bleeding prompt to implement a selective vagotomy, which however requires further studies.

Key words: duodenum, perforation, trauma, abdomen, endoscopy
