Please note the ANZCTR will be unattended from Friday 20 December 2019 for the holidays. The Registry will re-open on Tuesday 07 January 2020. Submissions and updates will not be processed during that time.

Please be advised that as the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Reduction of Surgical Site Infection in Cardiac Surgery using a Microbial Sealant-A Controlled Study
Scientific title
In coronary artery bypass patients requiring greater than 2 lengths of saphenous vein for conduit does the application of a cyanoacrylate surgical sealant prior to leg wound incision decrease wound infection rates scored at 1 month
when compared to the contralateral leg wound in the same patient.

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Application of a cyanoacrylate microbial surgical sealant to the skin surface immediately prior to skin incision for removal of the long saphenous vein for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Applied directly from sterile container with sponge applicator. Probable mechanism of action is the fixation of microorganisms within hair follicles and sweat glands, thus reducing quantitatively the contamination of the incision.
Intervention code [1] 257096 0
Treatment: Surgery
Comparator / control treatment
The contralateral leg wound in the same patient. This is managed in an identical fashion to the treatment (ie Sealant applied leg) other than the application of the sealant.
Control group
Active
