Resumo

SMIT, S J A  e  KLEINHANS, F. Surgical practice in a maximum security prison: unique and perplexing problems. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2010, vol.100, n.4, pp. 243-246. ISSN 2078-5135.

The practice of general surgery in a prison population differs considerably from that in a general surgical practice. We audited surgical consultations at the Mangaung Correctional Centre from December 2003 to April 2009. We found a high incidence of foreign object ingestion and anal pathology. Understanding the medical and social aspects of prison life facilitates the treatment of inmates with surgical problems.
