Abstract: Port site infections are a common complication in minimally invasive surgeries, including laparoscopic procedures, leading to increased patient morbidity and healthcare costs. This paper aims to review the incidence, risk factors, prevention strategies, and management of port site infections in minimally invasive surgeries. By examining current literature and guidelines, this review highlights the importance of proper surgical techniques, peri operative care, and postoperative monitoring in reducing the risk of port site infections. Additionally, the paper discusses the role of antimicrobial prophylaxis, wound care protocols, and patient education in optimizing outcomes for patients undergoing minimally invasive surgeries. The findings of this review provide valuable insights for healthcare providers to enhance patient safety and improve surgical outcomes in the management of port site infections in minimally invasive surgeries.
