PakSurg 1 has been designed as a prospective, multi-center study aimed to identify incidence and risk factors for the development of surgical site infections (SSIs) in patients undergoing elective surgeries across multiple surgical specialties.

The study has started from 1st September 2022. Collaborators will collect data on consecutive patients undergoing specific surgeries across their selected specialty over a one-month period in their local centers.

Patients will be followed up till 30 days. Primary endpoint will be the development of surgical site infections. Secondary endpoints will include mortality, unexpected reintervention, and other healthcare-associated infections within 30 days postoperatively. All data will be submitted via a secure, Redcap project server.​​
