Postoperative wound infections after vascular surgery with inguinal inscision (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet för denna studie var att studera förekomsten av postoperativa sårinfektioner hos patienter som genomgått kärloperation med inguinal incision under åren 2008 till och med mars månad 2013. Undersöka skillnader gällande riskfaktorer inom studerad patientgrupp för förekomst av postoperativ sårinfektion samt studera om patienter som utfört endovaskulär metod under samma vårdtillfälle oftare drabbades av postoperativ sårinfektion än de patienter som inte genomgått endovaskulär metod under samma vårdtillfälle. Metoden som användes var granskning av patientjournaler efter utifrån studien utvalda specifika operationskoder. Granskningen av de 54 patientjournalerna skedde med hjälp av egenmodifierad tidigare använd granskningsmall. Studieresultatet visar att förekomsten av postoperativa sårinfektioner hos den studerade patientgruppen uppgår till 22,2 %. Skillnader mellan infektion och utförd endovaskulär metod kunde ses men inte påvisas med statistisk signifikans. Studien visade också att kvinnor oftare än män drabbas av postoperativ sårinfektion. Slutsatsen är att ungefär var femte patient i studien, som genomgått denna typ av kirurgi, ådrog sig en postoperativ sårinfektion och att många av dessa ledde till en kostsam postoperativ sårbehandling med Vacuum assisted closure, (VAC).

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence of postoperative wound infections in patients undergoing vascular surgery with inguinal incision in the years 2008 until March 2013. Examining differences in the risk factors in the studied group of patients occurrence of postoperative wound infection and to study whether patients who performed endovascular method during the same hospitalization more often suffered postoperative wound infection than patients who did not undergo endovascular method during the same hospitalization. The method used was the examination of patient records for the study, based on selected specific audit template. Study results show that the incidence of postoperative wound infections in the studied patient population amounts to 22,2 %. Differences between infection and performed endovascular method could be seen but not detected with statistical significance. The study also showed that women more often than men suffer from postoperative wound infection. The conclusion is that approximately one in five patients in the study who have undergone this type of surgery, suffered a postoperative wound infection and that many of these led to a costly postoperative wound Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC).
