Objectives: To describe the incidence of wound infection when gall bladder
removed through umbilical port using the bag formed by surgical glove with a group where bag
is not used. Study Design: Descriptive study. Setting: Surgical units of Nishtar Hospital Multan.
Period: Two years from November 2013 to November 2015. Material and Method: There were
100 patients in study. All patients were divided in two groups, in one group a bag formed
by surgical glove is used in other group gall bladder removed without bag. Results: In first
group where bag is used minor wound infection occurred in only one patient at the umbilical
port site. In second group where bag is not used for the extraction of gall bladder, the minor
wound infection occurred in three patients. Conclusion: The use of endoglove is beneficial in
minimizing the port site infection & it is also economical.
