Surgical‐site infections (SSIs) increase morbidity and mortality in surgical patients and represent an economic burden to healthcare systems. Experiments have shown that triclosan‐coated sutures (TCS) are beneficial in the prevention of SSI, although the results from individual randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are inconclusive. A meta‐analysis of available RCTs was performed to evaluate the efficacy of TCS in the prevention of SSI.

Interventional Clinical Trial
INTRODUCTION It is estimated that over 80% of women who give vaginal birth will sustain some form of perineal tear and of these 60-70% will require suturing. It is of great importance… Expand

Meta‐analysis and trial sequential analysis of triclosan‐coated sutures for the prevention of surgical‐site infection
TLDR
The aim of this study was to evaluate all available evidence critically with comprehensive analysis to seek a more reliable answer regarding the effectiveness of TCS in the prevention of SSI. Expand
Meta‐analysis of the potential economic impact following introduction of absorbable antimicrobial sutures
TLDR
Despite several randomized trials, systematic reviews and meta‐analyses, the clinical and economic impact of using TCS compared with conventional non‐antimicrobial‐coated absorbable sutures (NCS) remains poorly documented. Expand
Meta-analysis of prevention of surgical site infections following incision closure with triclosan-coated sutures: robustness to new evidence.
TLDR
This SLR and meta-analysis showed that the use of triclosan antimicrobial sutures reduced the incidence of SSI after clean, clean-contaminated, and contaminated surgery. Expand
Triclosan-Coated Sutures Reduce the Risk of Surgical Site Infections: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
The random-effects meta-analysis based on RCTs suggests that TCSs reduced the risk of SSI by 26% among patients undergoing surgery, particularly evident among those who underwent abdominal surgery. Expand
The use of triclosan-coated sutures to prevent surgical site infections: a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature
Introduction and objectives Surgical site infections (SSIs) represent a common and serious complication of all surgical interventions. Microorganisms are able to colonise sutures that are implantedExpand
Efficacy of triclosan-coated sutures for reducing risk of surgical site infection in adults: a meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials.
TLDR
Triclosan-coated sutures can decrease the incidence of SSI in abdominal surgeries and might not interfere with wound healing process, Nevertheless, further studies are needed to examine whether triclosan/sutures are effective at preventingSSI in non-abdominal surgeries and to further study the interaction of antibiotic prophylaxis with tric Losan/Sutures. Expand
Triclosan-coated sutures for the prevention of surgical-site infections: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Evidence is given that triclosan-coated sutures were associated with a lower risk of surgical-site infections and further randomized studies are needed to confirm the role of TCS in specific surgical procedures and whether or not they are related with lower risk for mortality. Expand
The Clinical and Economic Value of Triclosan-Coated Surgical Sutures in Abdominal Surgery
TLDR
The use of triclosan-coated sutures (TCS) in abdominal surgery was associated with an overall annual net saving for the general surgery unit of €14,785 and a reduction of 3.2 SSIs compared with CS, indicating a valuable, cost-saving SSI prevention strategy. Expand
Triclosan-coated sutures and surgical site infection in abdominal surgery: the TRISTAN review, meta-analysis and trial sequential analysis
TLDR
Triclosan-coated Vicryl sutures for abdominal fascial closure decrease the risk of SSI significantly and based on the trial sequential analysis further RCTs will not change that outcome, and it is unknown whether additional RPTs will change that. Expand
The effect of triclosan-coated sutures on the rate of surgical site infection after hip and knee arthroplasty: a double-blind randomized controlled trial of 2546 patients
TLDR
This trial provided no evidence that the use of triclosan‐coated sutures in THA and TKA leads to a reduction in the rate of SSI. Expand

Triclosan-Impregnated Sutures to Decrease Surgical Site Infections: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Trials
TLDR
Triclosan-impregnated sutures do not decrease the rates of SSIs or decrease the rate of wound breakdown, and further high-quality independent studies within the right context are required before routine clinical use can be considered. Expand

TLDR
Use of the triclosan-coated polyglactin 910 antimicrobial suture lead to reduction of surgical site infection and has an impact on saving health care resources. Expand
Effect of Triclosan-Coated Sutures on the Incidence of Surgical Wound Infection After Lower Limb Revascularization Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The use of triclosan-coated sutures does not reduce the incidence of SWI after lower limb vascular surgery, and this study concludes that surgical wound infection is a common complication after peripheral vascular surgery. Expand
Preventing surgical site infections
TLDR
The need for a multimodal approach involving active post-discharge surveillance, as well as measures at every step of the care process, ranging from the operating theater to postoperative care, is highlighted. Expand
Randomized trial of antimicrobial-coated sutures to prevent surgical site infection after breast cancer surgery.
TLDR
Skin closure with antimicrobial sutures showed a non-statistically significant reduction in the SSI rate, compared with conventional suture group, but a uniform tendency for fewer SSIs in the antimicrobial-coated suturegroup was found, but the difference was not statistically significant. Expand
Triclosan-coated sutures for the reduction of sternal wound infections: economic considerations.
TLDR
Triclosan-coated sutures might be valuable in the reduction of sternal wound infections and avoid the suture being a risk factor for surgical site infections. Expand

TLDR
The results of a double blind prospective pilot study in women undergoing a breast reduction suggest that TC-coated sutures should be used with caution and might have potential adverse effects. Expand

TLDR
Antiseptic-coated loop Vicryl suture for abdominal wall closure can be superior to PDSII sutures in respect to the development of wound infections after a two-layered closure of transverse laparotomy. Expand
Surgical site infections after abdominal closure in colorectal surgery using triclosan-coated absorbable suture (PDS Plus) vs. uncoated sutures (PDS II): a randomized multicenter study.
TLDR
Compared with the previous retrospective studies of this department, the implementation of looped PDS decreased the incidence of SSI by one-half, whether the suture was triclosan-coated or not, and it seems that patient factors are less important than operative factors in the occurrence ofSSI.

Triclosan-coated sutures do not reduce leg wound infections after coronary artery bypass grafting.
TLDR
It is reported for the first time that Vicryl Plus did not reduce the incidence of leg wound infections in patients undergoing CABG and obesity and prolonged time of extracorporeal circulation were both associated with the increased risk of infections. Expand
