Gardnerella vaginalis in posthysterectomy infection



Gardnerella vaginalis in posthysterectomy infection



European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology & Reproductive Biology 35(1): 69-74



Eighty-six women were admitted for abdominal hysterectomy. Preoperatively, 43 women were culture-positive for G. vaginalis from the cervical os, and 43 women were culture-negative. Postoperatively, 18 patients developed inflammation; among those 14 patients from the culture-positive group were infected, whereas only 4 patients from the culture-negative group developed inflammation. The difference between occurrence of G. vaginalis and the absence of the bacteria in patients with postoperative infection is highly significant. No such increased risk of postoperative infection was correlated to the isolation of any other microorganism looked for viz. aerobic and anaerobic bacteriae, yeasts, viruses or chlamydiae. G. vaginalis may play a causative role in the development of posthysterectomy infection.
