Effects of the application of Vitamin E and silicone dressings vs Conventional dressings on incisional surgical site infection in elective laparoscopic colorectal surgery: A prospective randomized clinical trial.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect on incisional surgical site infection (SSI) of conventional wound dressing vs vitamin E-silicone dressing in patients undergoing elective colorectal la...
We implemented a hysterectomy-specific surgical site infection prevention bundle after a higher-than-expected surgical site infection rate was identified at our institution. We evaluate how this bundl...
