dc.description.abstractOesophageal perforation is an uncommon but life-threatening condition. Whether spontaneous (Boerhaave's syndrome), iatrogenic, associated with pre-existing oesophageal pathology or foreign body ingestion, the potential complications associated with perforation are severe, and the condition itself is challenging to treat. Managing oesophageal perforation in the rural setting presents additional hurdles, including delayed presentation because of patient's distance from hospital and limited treatment options. We present our experiences with this condition at Wimmera Base Hospital, located 4 hours by road from Melbourne.en_US
