Risk factors for surgical site infection after stoma closure comparison between pursestring wound closure and conventional linear wound closure: Propensity score matching analysis.


PURPOSE Stoma closure has been associated with a high rate of surgical site infection (SSI) and the optimal skin closure method is still controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the short-term and long-term outcomes between the conventional linear closure (CC) and the persestring closure (PC) using propensity score matching analysis. METHODS We… (More)
