Abstract
Background: Bile can be infected in case of gallstones, and may be related to develop wound infection following laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC).
Aim: To investigate the association between positive bile culture and wound infection in patients undergoing LC.
Methods: A total of 704 patients who underwent LC were included in the study. All patients were classified as patients with a negative bile culture (Group 1) and those with a positive bile culture (Group 2). The two groups were compared each other in terms of clinicopathological characteristisc and development of wound infection.
Results: Positive bile culture was found in 151 (21.4%) cases. In logistic regression analysis, advanced age, preoperative ERCP, and presence of acute cholecystitis were the independent risk factors for positive bile culture (p<0.001). Wound infection was detected in 13 (1.8%) patients, of whom 8 (61.5%) had positive bile culture. There was significant difference in culture positivity between patients with wound infection and those without wound infection (p=0.002).
Conclusion: Advanced age, presence of acute cholecystitis, and preoperative ERCP are the independent risk factors for positive bile culture in patients undergoing LC. Wound infection is more common in patients with positive bile culture.

Key words: Bile, culture, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, wound infection
