Recognizing a Postoperative Surgical Site Infection

Posted on May 6th, 2011 No Comments

Posto perative surgical site infections affect approximately 500,000 people

per year in the United States.

Of the estimated 27 million surgical procedures performed in the United States every year, approximately 2 million result in nosocomial infections. The incidence of infection ranges from one surgical procedure to another. The most criical factors in the prevention of postoperative infections are the sound judgement and proper technique of the surgical team as well as the general health of a patient. If you suspect you have developed a postoperative infection, it is important to identify it right away. Surgical site infections are characterized by a number of symptoms, including:

– Malaise

– Fever

– Warm or hot incision site

– Swelling or hardening of the incision

– Redness

– Drainage from the incision

The AlloDerm hernia mesh repair patch has been associated with a high rate of postoperative surgical site infections. If you have suffered complications from an AlloDerm graft, please contact the Alloderm lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187.
