Background:Surgical wound infection continues to consume a considerable portion of
health care finance. Even though the complete elimination of wound infections is not
possible, a reduction of observed wound infection rate to a minimum level could have
marked benefits in terms of both patients comfort and resources used .As many
surgeons believe that routine culture of peritoneal fluid in patients of secondary
peritonitis offer no useful information & no clinical benefits, not too many studies had
been done to support the utility of peritoneal fluid culture as a important parameter in
preventing SSI.. This study was aimed to study relevance of peritoneal fluid culture in
relation to its impact on surgical site infections and to know the most common organism
associated with peritonitis & SSI with their antibiotic sensitivity in our hospital. Also to
know if any correlation present between organism isolated from peritoneal fluid &
organism isolated from pus from wound.
