  1. Multivariable logistic regression analysis confirmed that one or more co-morbidity, previous C-section, preoperative antibiotics and duration of the surgery < 1 h are predictors of SSI
  2. a Variable (s) entered on step 1: age, co-morbidity, antibiotics, duration of surgery, previous C-section
