Tap water has been used as a readily available alternative to isotonic solutions and can be delivered via a shower head attachment. However, recent work has shown that tap water is not ideal as it is cytotoxic to fibroblasts, due to its alkaline pH, hypotonicity, and the presence of various trace elements.

Careful examination revealed that the dorsal two thirds of the anal sphincter had avulsed with the skin and the right perineal diaphragm was disnipted. The wound was classified as contaminated.
