Resumen

CONCHA-ROGAZY, Marcela; ANDRIGHETTI-FERRADA, Catalina  y  CURI-TUMA, Maximiliano. Aseptic techniques for minor surgical procedures. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2016, vol.144, n.8, pp.1038-1043. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872016000800011.

Aseptic techniques are those practices designed to reduce the risk of surgical site infection (SSI), defined as such, all those that occur within the first 30 days of the procedure. While the patient’s risk of developing an SSI in dermatologic surgery is low since many of the procedures are considered sterile, there are different factors associated with an increased or decreased risk of developing SSI. The characteristics of the surgical wound (such as involving infected or inflamed tissue or when breaks in the aseptic technique occur), patient characteristics (such as age, comorbidities, medication use and smoking) and procedure factors (such as setting, surgical technique, type of procedure, duration and body region involved). In this article we discuss the management of potential sources of infections such as personnel (hand washing, dressing), preparation of the patient, maintenance of a clean surgical environment, sterilization and the use of antiseptic solutions. Similarly, the current indications for prophylactic antibiotics for these procedures are considered.
