Abstract

Objective: Surgical site infections (SSI) are the most common complications after liver transplantation (LT). Although there are some risk factors known in the literature after LT, the available data is insufficient for routine use. In the present study, it was aimed to define the parameters that may be used to clearly determine the risk of SSI after LT in our clinic.
