BACKGROUND Surgical site infections (SSI) after spinal surgery increase morbidity, mortality, length of hospital stay, and costs. Most previously identified risk factors for these infections, such as severity of illness and procedure duration, are not amenable to intervention. This study sought to identify modifiable risk factors associated with SSI after spinal surgery. METHODS This is a case-control study including case identification and review of medical records. A total of 104 patients… CONTINUE READING
