Abstract: This is a retrospective study in which the incidence of postoperative wound infections in obstetrics and gynecological abdominal surgeries was studied. In January 2019 a new preoperative prophylactic measure was introduced. In the new protocol the abdomen of the patient awaiting surgery was scrubbed with chlorhexidine and povidone iodine solutions and the solution allowed to dry after this the patient was shifted to the OT and rescrubbed. The postoperative wound infection rates of pre January2019 and cases after the new prophylactic measure was compared. It was observed that the infection rates substantially and progressively decreased. Hence validating the new preoperative prophylactic measure.
