Abstract:

Analysis of the problems with infection in a series of 104 reinterventions, enables one to accentuate the importance of infestation from intraperitoneal foci (70 p. 100 of the cases). Extra-peritoneal entry pathways are difficult to prove. Septicemia is found in one out of every three cases. In certain cases, preventive treatment of the extra-peritoneal entry pathways must be opposed to the effectiveness of the surgical act in the eradication of septic foci.
