Dr. Priyam P Chowdhary | Dr. Rajan B Somani [2]


Abstract: Background: This is a prospective observational study done amongst patients who are admitted and undergone abdominal surgery during the duration of 18 months and to examine them for surgical site infections and their culture and sensitivity. Objective: To assess the surgical site infections after abdominal surgery at Sir .T Hospital, Bhavnagar and to study the bacteriological spectrum and effective antibiotics in Surgical site infections in abdominal surgeries. Methods: All post-operative patients who are admitted in ward of department of general surgery, Sir T general hospital, Bhavnagar during the study duration of 18 months. We had applied aseptic dressings on all the post-operative patients and then examined for appearance of clinical signs of surgical site infections and the pus culture and sensitivity was evaluated for the same. Results: The surgical site infections in abdominal surgeries were seen in male(60%) and female (40%) with more in middle aged group and on 5th post-operative day (40%) and 7th post-operative day (34%). According to wounds Contaminated are (40%), Dirty (34%), Clean contaminated (19%) and Clean (7%). Bacteriological isolates shows E.coli (49%), Klebsiella spp (26%), S.Aureus (13%), Pseudomonas (3%), Beta-Hemolytic Streptococci and Proteus mirabilis (1%). According to Types of SSI Wound abscess are (38%), Localized cellulitis (24%), Wound dehiscence (22%) and spreading cellulitis (16%). Antibiotic sensitivity 100% for Piperacillin / Tazobactum, Cefoperazone / Salbactum and Meropenem in Gram negative bacilli and 100% sensitivity to Vancomycin and Linezolid in gram positive cocci.
