Surgical Wound Infections After Vascular Surgery: Prospective Multicenter Trial
The purpose of this multicentre prospective trial is to determine the incidence and risk factors for surgical wound infections. Also the investigators will evaluate consequences of wound infections to the patients, and extra costs caused by wound infections.

Surgical Wound Infection
Infection occurring at the site of a surgical incision.
Surgical Wound Dehiscence
Pathologic process consisting of a partial or complete disruption of the layers of a surgical wound.
Intraocular infection caused mainly by pus-producing bacteria and rarely by fungi. The infection may be caused by an injury or surgical wound (exogenous) or by endogenous septic emboli in such diseases as bacterial endocarditis or meningococcemia.
Negative-pressure Wound Therapy
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
The trial is a randomized, controlled trial. Adult patients undergoing orthopaedic surgical procedures would be randomized to one of two groups for surgical wound closure, skin sutures or...
Supplemental perioperative oxygen has been reported to halve or double the risk of surgical wound infection. We tested the hypothesis that supplemental oxygen reduces infection risk follow...
Aim: To investigate the effect of high intra- and postoperative oxygen concentration (80%, as opposed to normally 30%) on surgical wound infection and pulmonary complications after abdomin...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the incidence of surgical site wound infection will be reduced in open appendectomy patients through the use of the Alexis® wound retract...
The objective of this randomized controlled trial is to compare wound morbidity (including disruption and infection) in surgical staples versus absorbable subcuticular suture for wound clo...
STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study, analyzing the risk factors for postoperative wound infections of the sacral chordoma after surgical excision. OBJECTIVE: To determine the preoperative, intraoperat...
Pasteurella multocida is a Gram-negative bacterium recovered from a wide variety of wild and domestic animals and has mostly been associated with infection following animal bites. We present the first...
Using direct matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS), we were able to investigate the role of the clinically important bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, in wound infect...
BACKGROUND: Surgical wound infection (SWI) is a common complication after peripheral vascular surgery. In a prospective study, triclosan-coated sutures were reported to decrease the incidence of surgi...
Use of a wound retraction (WR) is useful for lung resection by video-assisted thoracic surgery via a mini-thoracotomy. We have employed a WR for chest wall surgery involving surgical rib fixation in a...
