Abstract

The amount of the most common pyoinflammatory complications (surgical site infections, pleural empyema, nosocomial pneumonia, urinary tract infections, angiogenic sepsis) in cardiothoracic surgery has decreased significantly in recent decades but remains quite high. The applied therapeutic and diagnostic algorithms do not always allow their early detection, and the current methods of prevention are scattered and not applied comprehensively, which makes them imperfect and cannot be considered a satisfactory result. Finding ways to reduce the incidence of postoperative complications is a priority.

The review considers the incidence and factors of postoperative infectious and inflammatory complications, the methods of prevention and treatment used. The strategy aimed to reduce the rate of purulent surgical complications and improve the results of surgical intervention is formulated.

Keywords: pyoinflammatory complications, surgical infection, pleural empyema, nosocomial pneumonia, urinary tract infection, angiogenic sepsis.
