To compare the use of towels impregnated with 2% chlorhexidine gluconate in the traditional preoperative bath with 2% chlorhexidine gluconate in preventing the occurrence of surgical site infection among patients undergoing potentially contaminated elective surgery.
This is a pilot randomized controlled clinical trial, composed of patients submitted to potentially contaminated elective surgeries, randomly assigned to an intervention group, consisting of those who used towels impregnated with pre-operative CHG 2% and control group, composed of by the pre-operative bath with 2% conventional / liquid CHG. Both used the products the night before and the morning of surgery and received verbal and written guidance.

Antimony complex where the metal may exist in either the pentavalent or trivalent states. The pentavalent gluconate is used in leishmaniasis. The trivalent gluconate is most frequently used in schistosomiasis.
A disinfectant and topical anti-infective agent used also as mouthwash to prevent oral plaque.
The calcium salt of gluconic acid. The compound has a variety of uses, including its use as a calcium replenisher in hypocalcemic states.
An enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the reaction 6-phospho-D-gluconate and NADP+ to yield D-ribulose 5-phosphate, carbon dioxide, and NADPH. The reaction is a step in the pentose phosphate pathway of glucose metabolism. (From Dorland, 27th ed) EC 184.108.40.206.
