Jadhav MB, Mulimani PN, Suraj Lisha


Abstract: Introduction: Skin grafting is a common surgical procedure where graft may or may not be taken up completely. One of the cause of graft rejection is bacterial wound infection. This prospective study was done to analyse the type of bacteria causing skin-graft loss in a general population. Organisms isolated were grouped further based on the culture report obtained from post graft culture and sensitivity report. Materials and Methods: 50 patients who had come to MGM hospital with complaint of ulcers due to various causes were included in the study. In this study swab culture was sent from wound site on 3rd post- operative day of the grafting. Conclusion: Out of 50 samples sent, 13 had growth of Staphyloccus Aureus and 10 patients had Psuedomonas. These were the most common organism isolated. Out of these 44 % graft loss was seen in Psuedomonas and 27.6 % graft loss was seen in Staphyloccus Aureus.
