Abstrakti

Surgical wound infections are the most common causes of postoperative morbidity and can cause serious complications after surgery despite constant improvements in surgical practice. In most veterinary studies, surgical wounds are defined as infected if there is purulent discharge from the wound within 14 days after surgery. The factors that may influence the risk of veterinary surgical wound infection are adapted from human studies The diagnosis is based on clinical signs and possible positive bacterial culture from the infection site. The prognosis depends on the location and extent of the wound infection and the causative agent. In any case, the wound infection prolongs recovery and causes discomfort to the patient along with increasing the costs of the treatment. The prognosis is good for superficial infections that involve the skin and subcutaneous tissues; however, if infection involves deep tissues or bone, it can seriously affect the outcome of the surgery. © 2016 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
