Abstract

CHRONIC SINUS INFECTIONS IN PATIENTS AFTER LAPAROSCOPIC CHOLECYSTECTOMY

Dr. Shabbar Hussain Changazi, Dr. Areebah Hassan* and Dr. Ahmed Masood Qureshi

ABSTRACT

Introduction: A laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure in which the gall bladder of the patient is removed via minimal intrusion into the human body; it is a procedure in which four incisions are given, of 0.5-1.0 cm in length, special instruments are used to manipulate the internal organs and eventually remove the gall bladder of the patient. Under inadequate aseptic techniques these incision sites may become infected and it was observed that chronic sinuses developed at these port sites. A tunneling wound or a sinus tract is a narrow opening or passageway in any direction through soft tissue and results in dead space with potential for abscess formation. Port site infection is a commonly occurring surgical site infection that complicates laparoscopic surgery and has a vital role in the outcome of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the cause of development of port-site infections and to determine the most appropriate management of such patients. Study Design: Prospective, descriptive, qualitative study. Setting: Surgical Special Unit, Services Hospital, Lahore Duration of study: 20th October 2017 to 19th April 2018.
