Five cases of severe hemorrhagic shock of abdominal origin treated with abbreviated laparotomy due to the onset of hypothermia, acidosis and consumption coagulopathy are described. The abdomen was temporarily closed and the patients were transferred to these Intensive Therapy Unit for the treatment correction of these disorders.
