Change in the therapeutic concept for deep wound infections following vascular surgery



Change in the therapeutic concept for deep wound infections following vascular surgery



Chirurg 60(5): 340-345



Aseptic bypass graft and graft-preserving open local treatment have proved to be the two suitable procedures for therapy of infected grafts in vascular surgery (stage III Szilagyi [12]. 18 deep wound infections in vascular surgery were treated 1982-1986; rate of infection was 1.2%. The infection was successfully treated with preservation of life and limb in 66.7%. Amputation was unavoidable in 5 patients (27.8%). 2 patients (11.1%) died. By applying the above-discussed principles of management the results could be drastically improved.
