Prevention of Surgical Site Infections — with Special Focus on Vascular Surgery

from Zentralbl Chir via PubMed

Surgical site infections range between the most commonly and second most commonly reported healthcare-associated infections worldwide, depending on the analysis. They are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Not only for the individual patient, the negative consequences of acquiring a surgical site infection affect the patient's relatives, the hospital and health systems in general. In vascular surgery, gram-positive pathogens of the normal flora of the patient's skin and mucosa (nose/throat) represent the almost half of the number of pathogens detected at the infected surgical site. Staphylococcus aureus itself accounts for about one third of these positive samples. more
