A method for the diagnosis of the postoperative wound infection

A method for the diagnosis of the postoperative wound infection

Laboratornoe Delo (8): 55-57

The author suggests a method for in vitro detection of antibacterial activity of the postoperative wound tissue liquid. This technique helps predict the inflammatory complications in the patients operated on, starting from the second day postoperation. If antibacterial activity is elevated, the tissue fluid inhibits the growth of Micrococcus lysodeikticus test strain. Positive results of laboratory tests have been associated with a benign course of the postoperative period in all the cases. When the results have been negative, the patients have developed purulent complications of the postoperative wounds as a rule.
