Open Access Biomedical Publisher Using Post Publication Peer Review
No relation does exist between the number of the people in the OR and post operative infection, if proved, very important
Yes but insufficient, multi-center studies with larger numbers are required as this complication consists only a part of the post-operative complications
1. Introduction lacks references. I suppose the facts presented in the introduction section should be supported by recent references.
2. As they have sent all the samples to the lab, I suppose one major section which is lacked in this study is the prevalence of the different organisms involved in postoperative infection and their sensitivity to the antibiotics. This would immnesly add to the quality of the present paper. I would suggest the authors to add this data, if possible.
3. One probable cofunding factor to this study is the other routes of infection i.e. hematogenous and so on, how were these factors eliminated from the study?
4. The references are old and it is better to be replaced with new ones.
Yes, as sometimes teams with large number of the people are required especially in major surgeries, this fact would be a relief to all the practitioners in the field
To assess the relationship if any between theatre population and wound infection after internal fixation of fractures. this is an important aspect of quality of surgical care in general
There have been similar findings by Onche et al as seen in their references
There was no statistical significance from their findings
Yes the methodology is valid
The authors should rather tell us the factors that contribute to wound infection after implant surgery
The findings are not really novel
