This thesis describes some of the observations made in a study of various factors believed to be involved in the aetiology of postoperative wound infection. An attempt has been made to compare two different ward and operating theatre environments with a view to assessing their relative contributions to the development of wound sepsis. Many different factors have been investigated, the previous literature of interest and relevance being reviewed in the introduction to each chapter. It is necessary to emphasise that the thesis has been written by a general surgeon in training. There has been no attempt to present a learned bacteriological treatise, rather the intention being to bring out features of practical importance to the clsinical surgeon. In order to facilitate the reading and comprehension of this work, the material is presented in two volumes. The first volume contains the main text of the thesis, while, in the second volume are included tables, figures, bibliography, and appendix.
