Results A total of 2276 patients underwent elective colorectal surgery. O/S infection occurred in 193 (8.5%). Patients with O/S were more frequently men (73% versus 60%; p = 0.001); underwent a rectal procedure (43% versus 31%; p<0.001) and had NNIS index ≥ 1 (43% versus 34%; p = 0.06). Median length of stay was 3 fold higher (22 days versus 7 days; p <(More)
