To evaluate the rate of surgical site infection (SSI) and associated risk factors after parotid gland surgery including the impact of antibiotic prophylaxis.
Retrospective single‐center clinical study.
Tertiary referral center for head and neck surgery
754 patients who underwent parotid gland surgery at the University Hospital Heidelberg, Germany between 2007 and 2014 were enrolled in this study.
Data on patient age, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) classification system, smoking status, diabetes mellitus, operation time, and antibiotic prophylaxis were collected.
Additionally, the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) risk index was calculated.
Association of these factors with SSI was evaluated in univariate analyses and a multivariate logistic regression model.
