Risk factors for wound infection in operations involving the opening of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, were explored in a prospective study.
There were 813 consecutive operations performed during a period of 9-14 months in 11 Israeli hospitals.
The total crude infection rate was 21.6%, and the respective rates for operations on the stomach, small bowel and colon were 14.8, 21.4 and 25.4%. Of 17 putative risk factors, the strongest predictor was the performance of 2 or more operations during the same admission.
