Abstract

Objective: To study the incidence and risk factors for postoperative infection following cesarean sections and major gynecological surgery. Methods: Postoperative infection was documented in the specified registersin all patients following cesarean sections and major gynecological surgery from January 1997 to December 1998. This study was a part of the prospective analysis of hospital-based morbidity and mortality in the Department ofObstetrics and Gynecology. Results: There were a total of 89 cases of postoperative infections amongst 4,032 patients undergoing major operations giving an overall infection rate of 2.2%. The morbidity due to infections was 3.3% in cesarean sections and 0.9% in major gynecological surgery. Abdominal hysterectomies had a higher infection rate than vaginal surgery. The most common causative organismsisolated were Enterococcus, Staphylococcus and Klebsiella species. Conclusion: It was found that vaginal flora was a significant source of contamination during surgery, which could be minimised by local sterilisationmethods. The high infective morbidity in abdominal hysterectomies needs further analysis of the risk factors. Infection surveillance with a regular review of antibiotic protocols is recommended.
