[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Approaches to the epidemiological analysis of postoperative wound complications in surgical hospitals are summarized. The indices for the evaluation of the epidemic situation in surgical departments (the ratio of severe and mild forms of complications, severe and posthospital complications) are proposed. To determine the site of infection, the method of graphic analysis, involving the fixation of dates of the operation and the appearance of the complication and taking into account regularities in the development of the outbreak, the depth and severity of the lesion, is proposed. Epidemiological surveillance at medical institutions permits the prognostication of the epidemiological situation. The realization of epidemiological surveillance at the level of individual medical institutions is the prerequisite of effective functioning of the program of epidemiological surveillance at a given territory.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: To carry out the epidemiological analysis of postinjection suppurations and to introduce the relevant prophylactic measures, the forms of registration and account for suppurative inflammatory diseases should be legitimized and the data on such cases per the number of injections made at therapeutic and prophylactic institutions and their branches should be calculated. The organization of centralized sterilization of instruments and the 100% provision of all institutions with these instruments can reduce the occurrence of postinjection suppurations.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: An epidemiological analysis of pyo-inflammatory diseases (PID) in surgical department of multiprofile hospitals has been made. PIDs were diagnozed in 16.2% of patients operated upon. The observation of fluctuations of the level of PID with regard for the correlation of severe and "minor" forms and terms of their appearance allows to make a conclusion of the probable place of infection and may serve an indicator of epidemiological situation. The application of film-forming drug "Lyfuzol" for closing operative wounds has decreased the incidence of PID in catarrhal and phlegmonous appendicitis 2.6 times.
