Abstract

A study of 7,388 consecutive patients after hepatic resection between 2011 and 2012 identified hepatolithiasis, cirrhosis, and intraoperative blood transfusion as the only independent risk factors of both in-cisional and organ/space surgical site infection (SSI). Patients with these conditions should be cared for with caution to lower SSI rates.
