Abstract

Skin injury occurring in the operating room may occur as a result of electrical current, thermal injury, chemical irritation and mechanical stress. Between 1 December 1996 and 28 February 1997, 19 cases of skin injury from a total of 3657 operations were noted in our hospital. These injuries tend to be ignored because of their early spontaneous healing. We suggest that medical staff should pay more attention to this complication and prevent it from occurring.
