SILVA, Diogo Rêgo da; LIMA, Patrícia Correia; NUNES, Maria do Rosário Conceição Moura  e  CRAVINHOS, Júlio César de Paulo. Comparison Between Two Methods of Preoperative Antisepsis of Hands in Oral Surgery. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 45-54. ISSN 1808-5210.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of preoperative brushing, the immediately and residual effect of the antiseptics on bacterial reduction of hands, before the oral surgical procedures. Methodology: To the experiment, were selected 20 students of dentistry, who participated in four experimental groups: group I, using povidone-iodine (PVP-I) 10% degerming associated with hand-scrubbing, mechanical and chemical antisepsis; group II, PVP-I 10% and hand-rubbing, performing only chemical antisepsis; group III, digluconate of the chlorhexidine 2% solution degermante with hand-scrubbing; group IV, chlorhexidine 2% and hand-rubbing. Results: As a result of residual effect, the group I made on average 71% of bacterial reduction, while the group II showed 83%; group III resulted in 97% of antimicrobial action, the group IV showed approximately 97% of bactericidal effect. Conclusion: Noting that both groups used the same anti-septic solution to hand-rubbing method showed better at least similar results in bacterial reduction than hand-scrubbing. About the anti-septic solution the chlorhexidine showed greater reduction of microbial load that the PVP-I.
