Now-a-days, caesarean section is a most common practice in Obstetric practices. Post Caesarean wound infection is a widespread aversion to caesarean delivery in developing countries. In order to control and prevent the post C/S wound infection in our places, there is a need to assess the relative contribution of each etiological factor. The aims this study to determine the incidence of post caesarean section wound infections among the patients at Misurata Central Hospital and Al-khoms teaching… Expand
