The burden of wounds is substantial, affecting approximately 3.8 million individuals and placing a considerable financial strain on the NHS, estimated at £8.3 billion annually. There are many reported interventions that might help to reduce the development of Surgical Site Infection, but evidence is severely lacking.
This interdisciplinary project will involve working collaboratively with the Academic Vascular Surgical Unit (AVSU), the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) Skin Research Centre and teams within Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Infection Prevention and Control and Plastics teams. It aims to investigate how different pre, peri and post operative interventions influence the skin's susceptibility to infection and whether specific techniques are associated with a higher or lower risk of postoperative infections and are more conducive to optimal wound healing.
