The Use of Triclosan-coated sutures: Research studies have shown a gross reduction in surgical site infections.

The Use of Triclosan-coated sutures in battling surgical site infections.

A scientific conference that held in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology seminar room of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital around late February, 2018 gave an insight into the advantage and cost-effectiveness of using Triclosan-coated sutures.

Dr Adumah, a resident doctor in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department presented the research analysis at the scientific conference having conducted a blind study on a group of patients that were operated in the O&G in-patient record and the outcome that yielded upon being operated with Triclosan-coated sutures.

Research conclusions showed that the rate of surgical site infection, a major complication in surgical practice, was drastically reduced.
She advocated for the adoption of the sutures stating further that the cost-effectiveness and efficiency were not ignoble.

Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent present in some consumer products, including toothpaste, soaps, detergents, toys, and surgical cleaning treatments.
