Abstract

Surgical site infection refers to infection in surgical site which is created within 30 days after surgery. Infection may occur by bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi and worms. In traditional Iranian medicine, many plants are used to control and treat infections.

Medicinal herbs such as chamomile, flax, veneris, oleander, savory, mallow, castor, sage, garlic, harmala etc. are the most important medicinal plants for disinfecting wounds in Iran. © 2009-2016, JGPT.
