A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Trial Comparing An Irrisept Antiseptic Irrigation With 0.05% Chlorhexidine Gluconate versus Standard of Care Prophylaxis Chlorohexidine Wipes
The purpose of this prospective randomized control trial is to access outcomes of positive culture growth of C. acnes from specimens obtained from the shoulders of patients undergoing primary shoulder arthroplasty whose intraoperative management includes Irrisept antiseptic irrigation and compare it to patients whose management includes standard of care prophylaxis wipes.
|Experimental: Antiseptic Cleanser
Standard prophylaxis will be administered by Irrisept patients as would individuals in the control group. In addition, these Irrisept study subjects will be supplemented with the use of Irrisept irrigation by the study surgeon during the patient's surgical procedure. Standard times for irrigation will include immediately after incision through the dermal layer, and immediately prior to implantation of any prosthetic components. Final irrigation will be performed just prior to closure of the deltopectoral interval.
Drug: Antiseptic Cleanser
Contains 0.05% Chlorhexidine gluconate in sterile water for irrigation. The mechanical action of the Irrisept system removes bacteria and debris without harming underlying tissues. Irrisept has demonstrated broad spectrum bactericidal activity against antibiotic-resistant strains. Its contents are wrapped in two sequential sterilization wraps which repel water blood, and saline, making it effective against both air and water borne bacteria.
