Scoring system to predict the risk of surgical-site infection after colorectal resection

Authors
Troillet, N
Published in British Journal of Surgery. 2012, vol. 99, no. 4, p. 589-95
Abstract There is no dedicated scoring system for predicting the risk of surgical-site infection (SSI) after resection of the colon or rectum. Generic scores, such as the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance index, are not used by colorectal surgeons.
