A total of 849 subjects (409 in the chlorhexidine-alcohol group and 440 in the povidone-iodine group) qualified for the intention-to-treat analysis the overall rate of surgical-site infection was significantly lower in the chlorhexidine-alcohol group than in the povidone-iodine group (95% vs 161% p=0004. Gluconate is superior to povidone iodine in reducing surgical site infections [1,2,3 ,4] as there are many factors for surgical site infection but it can be significantly lowered with the use of effective antiseptics, present study compares efficacy of alcoholic chlorhexidine versus aqueous povidone iodine in prevention of surgical.

Recent reports have shown the utility of chlorhexidine-alcohol for surgical site antisepsis in nonobstetric cohorts however, limited data is available concerning the optimal antisepsis among obstetrics patients who comprise of relatively young and healthy women the aim of the current study was to compare the incidence of.

Antisepsis of the skin before spinal surgery with povidone iodine-alcohol followed by chlorhexidine gluconate-alcohol versus povidone iodine-alcohol whether the sequential application of povidone iodine-alcohol (pvi) followed by chlorhexidine gluconate-alcohol (chg) would reduce surgical wound.

Mimoz et al assigned patients to skin preparation with 05% chlorhexidine in alcohol or povidone-iodine in an aqueous solution the contamination rates were much lower in the chlorhexidine group ([14% vs 33%] odds ratio, 040 [95% ci, 021-075] p=0004) in patients undergoing clean-contaminated surgery skin. We found good evidence for the superiority of chlorhexidine/alcohol (two antiseptics) over that of aqueous povidone–iodine (one antiseptic) for all three applications and such a difference applies to some of the published trials, eg those comparing chlorhexidine/alcohol with aqueous povidone–iodine.
The above comparison — also the one in the darouiche 2010 nejm paper — is not a comparison of chlorhexidine vs iodine it is actually a comparison of chlorhexidine plus alcohol (ie 2 antiseptics) vs povidone-iodine alone (ie one antiseptic) on microbiological grounds, the alcohol is about 10 times. Researchers from multiple institutions conducted a randomized trial in adult patients to compare the rate of postoperative surgical-site infections following preoperative skin cleansing with either 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol or 10% povidone-iodine the study was performed at six. Methods two preoperative surgical skin antiseptic agents—chloraprep (2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol) and betadine (75% povidone-iodine solution)—were prospectively compared across 2 consecutive time periods for all consecutive adult neurosurgical spine patients. Abstract: background: since the patient's skin is a major source of pathogens that cause surgical-site infection, optimization of preoperative skin.
