Abstract
The present study aimed to evaluate whether teaching had an influence on surgical site infections (SSI) after colonic surgery.
Colonic surgeries between January 2014 and December 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Demographics, surgical details, and SSI rates were compared between teaching procedures vs. experts. Risk factors for SSI were identified by multinominal logistic regression.
SSI were prospectively assessed by an independent National Surveillance Program (www.swissnoso.ch) at Lausanne University Hospital CHUV, a tertiary academic institution.
Included in the present analysis were patients documented in a prospective institutional enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) database and who were prospectively monitored by the independent National Infection Surveillance Committee between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2016.
In all, 315 patients constituted the study cohort. Demographic and surgical items were comparable between teaching (n = 161) vs. expert operations (n = 135) except for higher occurrence of wound contamination class III-IV (13 vs. 19%, p = 0.046) in patients operated by experts. Overall, 61 patients (19%) developed SSI, namely 25 patients (16%) in the teaching group and 32 patients (24%) in the expert group (p = 0.077). Contamination class III-IV (OR = 3.2; 95% CI: 1.4-7.5, p = 0.005) and open surgery (OR = 3.4; 95% CI: 1.8-6.7, p < 0.001) were independent risk factors for SSI, while teaching had no significant impact (OR = 0.6; 95% CI: 0.3-1.2, p = 0.153).
Surgical teaching was feasible and safe after colonic surgery in the present cohort and had no impact on SSI rate.
