A prospective randomized trial was performed comparing the efficacy of intraperitoneal irrigation with low molecular weight povidone-iodine solution ('Betadine LMW') (PVP-I LMW) in reducing the risk of intra-abdominal infectious complications. Seventy-five patients who were undergoing surgical procedures in the face of bacterial contamination were studied. Patients were intra-operatively randomized to receive intraperitoneal irrigation prior to abdominal closure with PVP-I LMW or with saline… CONTINUE READING
