Background: Wound infection rates after various types of bariatric operations have been well described. The question of whether bariatric surgery increases wound infection rate compared with similar elective surgical procedures in obese patients has not been clearly answered. The purpose of this study was to investigate wound status of morbidly obese patients after elective general surgery.
