Iodophor-impregnated Adhesive Drapes Prevent Incidences of SSIs in Patients

Adhesive plastic incise drapes impregnated with antimicrobial agents are used in a patient’s skin after the completion of the surgical site preparation. This drape acts as a microbial barrier to prevent the migration of microorganisms from the skin to the operative site. However, it has been found that these drapes also lead to increased recolonization of the skin, resulting in antiseptic preparation underneath the adhesive drapes compared to the use of no drapes.

Surgical sight infections (SSI) are inhibiting the growth for the surgical drapes market. Hence, companies in the surgical drapes market are recommending the use of iodophor-impregnated adhesive drapes to prevent incidences of SSIs in patients.
