Chlorhexidine vs. Iodine for Vaginal Preparation in Urogynecologic Procedures


Brief description of study

This is a randomized controlled trial to determine if there is a difference between chlorhexidine gluconate and povidone iodine vaginal preparations for urogynecological surgery post operative infections.

Detailed Study Description

The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to determine whether there is a difference in efficacy of two of the most common commercially available vaginal surgical preparations. The first objective is to determine whether chlorhexidine gluconate is non-inferior to povidone iodine with respect to post-operative infections including urinary tract infections (both culture proven and empirically treated) and surgical site infections (as defined by the Centers for Disease Control). The second objective is to determine whether chlorhexidine gluconate is non-inferior to povidone iodine with respect to vulvar and vaginal irritation.
