[Comparative characteristics of bactericidal activity of various traditional and currently available antiseptics used in surgery].

Abstract

Comparative study of the microbicidal activity of some traditional (hydrogen peroxide, boric acid, nitrofurazone) and currently available (Baliz-2, dioxidine, chlorhexidine bigluconate, pervomur) antiseptics against the most commonly encountered causative agents of purulent surgical infection showed 0.8%, 1.2%, and 2.4% pervomur solutions to possess the highest bactericidal and sporicidal activity. This circumstance allowed weak (0.8 and 1.2%) solutions of pervomur to be used in the clinic in 68 patients for the management of purulent postoperative complications and localized purulent infection, which improved the results of treatment significantly.
