Abstract: Introduction: There are two types of surgical site Infections – Major and Minor type. Major SSI is one in which there is significant quantity of pus spontaneously discharged or which needs a another surgical procedure to drain pus and also presents with signs of Acute Inflammation.Minor SSI is one in which there is pus discharge is small in amount or having infected serous fluid but without signs of Inflammation.
Aims and Objective: To study about incidence of SSI in patients undergoing Emergency Laparotomy.
Materials and Methods: Prospective observational study conducted in RMMCH, Chidambaram from September 2019 to November 2021.
Results: SSI seen in 239 patients out of 311, more in males when compared with females. SSI patients had Increased Morbidity and Increased length of stay in Hospital. Anaemic patients undergoing Laparotomy had Increased risk of surgical site Infection.
Conclusions: Patients with Surgical Site Infections had Increased Morbidity and Increased Length of Stay in Hospital. Much more care must be given to minimise the incidence of Surgical Site Infection.
