Abstract

The article presents the results of microbiological researchrelated to the identification of microbial strains isolated froman infected surgical wound and the study of their resistanceto antibiotics.Microbiological research was conducted in one of theclinics in Tbilisi in 2020-21. Material for the study was takenfrom a surgical wound infected with a sterile swab. A total of53 microbial strains were isolated, including 5 strains – Acine-tobacter calcoaceticus,12 strains – Acinetobacter baumanii,15 strains – Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and 21 strains of Kleb-siella pneumoniae. Isolation and identification of microbialstrains were performed using traditional methods of microbi-ological research.Disc-diffusion and serial dilution methods were used onsolid culture media to determine the susceptibility /resis-tance to different groups of antimicrobial drugs.Most of the isolated microbial strains were found to beresistant to antibiotics and in some cases characterized bymultidrug resistance
