Abstract

According to this study:

 

* Reoperation rates are similar regardless of the pressure used to irrigate open wound fractures.

 

* Very low pressure is an acceptable option in open fracture wound irrigation.

 

* Normal saline alone is superior to a solution of castile soap with normal saline for routine irrigation of acute open fractures.
