Complications in colorectal surgery

Dr. Roiyal Gramignoli*

Colorectal surgery is associated with a lesser threat for infections than utmost other surgical fortes and is considered an outlier for surgical point infections (SSI) [1]. Reducing the prevalence of infections, especially SSIs, remains a major challenge in colorectal surgery. Prevention of SSIs can be achieved by several styles, including optimized preoperative case medication, perioperative bowel medication, strict adherence to antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines, increased intraoperative oxygen delivery, crack irrigation, conservation of intraoperative normothermia, and postoperative glycemic control [2]. Prevention of urinary tract infections can be achieved by early urinary catheter junking and sterile intraoperative catheter placement. Respiratory infections can be averted by smoking conclusion, early postoperative rallying, and pulmonary care with use of incitement spirometry, coughing and deep breathing, oral care, and head- of- bed elevation [3].
