What is it?
During an abdominal hysterectomy, a physician surgically removes the uterus and reproductive organs by making an opening in the lower abdomen. Patients undergoing an abdominal hysterectomy have increased risk of exposure to bowel- and urinary tract-related bacteria and face an even higher risk if an underlying infection exists.

How's it measured?
The rate is per 100 procedures.
