The technique of interdental wiring was compared with a small-plate osteosynthesis technique (SPO) in a prospective study of surgical glove perforations acquired during the treatment of mandibular fractures. Using the SPO technique there was a significant reduction in the incidence of skin penetrating injuries in the surgeon (P less than 0.005) and assistant surgeon groups (P less than 0.05). The reduction in the incidence of glove perforation in the assistant surgeon group was very highly… CONTINUE READING
