Official Title: Prospective Randomised Trial Using Integuseal as Microbial Sealant for Arterial Bypass Surgery on Lower Extremities

Further study details as provided by Rijnstate Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Postoperative wound infections

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Costs of the use of Integuseal
  • Complications during hospital stay

Estimated Enrollment: 450
Study Start Date: January 2010
Study Completion Date: May 2011
Primary Completion Date: April 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: No use of integuseal
Experimental: Use of Integuseal
Application of a layer of Integuseal (Cyanoacrylate) from a ready to use applicator preoperative before incision Polymerisation immobilise the bacteria that survived the conventional skin preparation This way there will be les contamination of the wound.
Procedure: Application of Integuseal sealant
Microbial sealant (integuseal) applied with a sponge applicator
