Abstract:OBJECTIVE To analyze data of postoperative infections in patients after female pelvic floor dysfunction surgery and find in-volved factors so as to provide guidance for infection prevention. METHODS The clinical data of 750 hospitalized patients with pelvicfloor dysfunction who underwent the surgery were retrospectively analyzed. The incidence of postoperative infections, infection sites, pathogens and influence factors of postoperative infections were studied. RESULTS There were 73 cases of postoperative infectionsamong 750 patients of female pelvic floor dysfunction after surgery. The infection rate was 9.73%. The genital tract infections was themajor postoperative infection site(28 cases, 37.4%), followed by urinary tract, respiratory tract, surgical site, digestive systemand bloodstream infection. Totally 56 strains of pathogens were detected. Among them, 44 strains were gram-negative bacilli, ac-counting for 78.57%, the main bacteria was Escherichia coli. Univariate and multivariable Logistic stepwise regression analysisshowed the operating duration and diabetes mellitus were independent risk factors of postoperative infections in patients of female pel-vic floor dysfunction. CONCLUSION The postoperative infections were severe in the patients of female pelvic floor dysfunction. It wasnecessary to pay more attention to prevent and control postoperative infections of female pelvic floor dysfunction. Control the operationduration and control the blood glucose at a reasonable level in patients with diabetes mellitus, so as to reduce the incidence of post-operative infections.
