To determine factors predictive of postoperative surgical site infection (SSI) after fracture fixation and create a prediction score for risk of infection at time of initial treatment.
Microbiological contamination of surgical gloves occurs during surgery, which may warrant glove change during orthopaedic surgeries. However, no systematic review of this topic has previously been pub...
The prevention of surgical site infection guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently recommended that only a single dose of preoperative antibiotics be administ...
The purpose of this systematic review is to improve outcomes for the care of surgical site infections by presenting the current best evidence on important diagnostic and care issues. The findings led ...
The current meta-analysis was conducted to explore and identify the risk factors of surgical site infection after spinal surgery based on qualified studies, and to gain insight into the management of ...
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...
Surgical site infections are not uncommon, especially in specific high-risk groups including spinal deformity and tumor (i.e. metastatic spine surgery) surgery. Well-recognized measures ha...
This study evaluates the current surgical practices at Ayder Comprehensive Specialized Hospital in comparison to the World Health Organization's Surgical Unit Based Safety Programme guidel...
Surgical site infections in orthopaedic surgery are a major problem. Decolonization has been suggested to reduce infection rates. We designed a prospective, controlled, randomized, single-...
The CDC quotes a rate of wound infection of 2-5% for inpatient surgery. Patients undergoing a vascular operation, however, are generally at an increased risk of wound infection with rates ...
Infection occurring at the site of a surgical incision.
Physicians or other qualified individuals responsible for implementing and overseeing the policies and procedures followed by a health care facility to reduce the risk of infection to patients and staff.
Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
Sterile clothing worn during surgical procedures to protect the surgical site from sources of contamination.
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.
