Objective: Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is one of the most common conditions requiring surgical intervention in the neonatal period. The decision for surgical intervention in NEC is difficult and the surgical procedures differ according to the condition of the patient. This study assesses the decision for surgical intervention in patients being followed with a preliminary diagnosis of NEC and the appropriate surgical procedure.
