Abstract: Background: Surgical site infection (SSI) continues to be a baffling problem since time immemorial. It is one of the major causes for postoperative morbidity and mortality. Many methods have been evolved to combat wound infection, but the rate of wound infection has been more or less static over past few years. The search for alternative modes of management is going on and one of the methods is intra incisional subcutaneous infiltration of antibiotics.
Methods: This is a prospective study comprising of control and study groups of 30 patients each. Control group patients did not receive subcutaneous infiltration of 1gm (diluted with 10 cc of distilled water) of ceftriaxone whereas study group received the infiltration. Precise examination of wound was done from post-operative day 3 up to day 10 for the presence of pus discharge or any subcutaneous collection.
