Abstract

Clinical Question:

Do antiseptics and antibiotics benefit surgical wounds healing by secondary intention (SWHSI)?

Bottom Line:

No high-quality randomized clinical trials have addressed this question. Current evidence is limited and insufficient; it is uncertain whether treating SWHSI with antiseptics or antibiotics is beneficial.
