The aim of this study was to investigate a potential association of certain risk factors in orthopedic patients with surgical site infection (SSI) occurrence. The study population consisted of all patients who underwent surgery at the Orthopedic and Traumatology Clinic of the University Hospital in Kragujevac (n = 801) over a 12- month period. Surgical site infections were found in 104 patients (13.0%). Results of multivariate regression analysis indicated that SSIs were signiicantly more frequent in patients who had a contaminated or dirty wound (RR = 27.68, 95% CI = 11.54 to 66.40; p = 0.0000), with drainage (RR = 4.62, 95% CI = 2.33 to 9.15; p = 0.0000), and who were at the Intensive Care Unit (RR = 3.25, 95% CI = 1.38 to 7.69; p = 0.0072).
