Evaluation of surgical site infections after caserean deliveries

Selami Erdem [1] , Oznur Erdem [2]


Background: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a common postoperative complication. In this study, we aimed to determine the infection rate of the surgical field after cesarean section in our hospital.
Method: Cesarean section patients between january 2016 and december 2017 were studied in our hospital. The culture results of 74 patients diagnosed with SSI were analyzed..
Results: Although no pathogen was detected in 38 (51.36%) of the patients, 36 (48.64%) of the patients were found to be pathogenic microorganisms in culture. ın the culture results of these patients; 11 patients were s. aureus (14.86%), 8 patients (10.81%) were coagulase (-) staphylococcus, ın 7 patients (9.45%), e. coli, ın 2 patients (2.70%), klebsiella pneumonia, ın 2 patients (2.70%), enterococcus faecalis, ın 2 patients (2.70%) proteus mirabilis, 1 patient (1.35%) enterobacter aerogenes, ın one patient (1.35%) Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Gram (+) cocc was detected in 1 patient (1.35%).
Conclusion: SSI culture results should be taken into account when selecting prophylaxis and empirical treatment to prevent surgical site infections.
