From: Costs of relaparotomy on-demand versus planned relaparotomy in patients with severe peritonitis: an economic evaluation within a randomized controlled trial

Figure 1

Comparing on-demand and planned-relaparotomy strategies for patients ranked according to their total costs. Total costs could be taken as proxy for clinical condition and recovery. The observed difference in total costs per patient was similar for patients with the most favorable conditions and courses of recovery, as compared with patients with more severe conditions or complicated courses of recovery or both. PR, planned relaparotomy; OD, on-demand relaparotomy.
