  1. Risk factors for surgical wound infection among the elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    One hundred fifty-seven elderly patients with surgical wound infection were matched on wound classification and date of surgery to non-infected control patients.

    Factors examined for their association with wound infection included medical history, functional status, behaviour (e.g. smoking), factors predisposing to infection (e. g. results of CBC and urinalysis) and operative factors such as preparation, duration and type of operation.
