Abstract

Minimum Access Surgery is a combination of modern technology and surgical innovation aimed at achieving therapeutic surgical goals with minimal somatic and physiological trauma. The largest example is minimal access surgery (MAS) usually referred to as minimally invasive surgery or laparoscopic surgery (LS), which has led to a paradigm shift in the modern surgical procedures approaches by reducing access correlated morbidity. No such study has not been held in Pakistan in the previous 5-years, this study will provide us with the most up-to-date information on the incidence of port-site wound infections in patients enduring laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the MMCTH Surgical Department. In addition, this study results will be shared with other healthcare experts and can be used for further research.

 Aim: To determine the incidence of port-site wound infections in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the MMCTH surgical department.

 Study design: Descriptive case series

 Place and Duration: In the General Surgery Department of Mardan Medical Complex, Pakistan for the duration of one year, from May 7, 2019 to June 7, 2020.

 Methods: All male / female patients enduring laparoscopic cholecystectomy, aged 20 to 60 years, were included in the study. After hospitalization, a detailed history was taken and the patient was examined. The patient was provided with detailed information about participation in the study and informed / written consent of the patients about the benefits / risks of the study was obtained. Age, gender and registered address information was documented. The intraoperative results are recorded in the form attached to the patient's records file. After discharge, patients are called for a follow-up on the 30th postoperative day in order to evaluate port site wound infections. Port site wound infections were assessed by the presence of redness, pain (assessed by visual analogue scoring) or swelling (evaluated by naked eyes) or yellow discharge (pus) at the port site.

Results: In this study, the mean age was 42 years with an SD of ± 12.69. One hundred and twenty 35% of patients were men and 65% were women. While over 21 (6%) patients had port site infection, 321 (94%) had no infection at the port site.

 Conclusion: In our study, it was found that the incidence of port site wound infections in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the MMCTH surgical ward was 6%.
