BACKGROUND The principle objective of this research was to match the results of varied lavage methods – conventional saline lavage (SL), pulse lavage (PL), closed drainage (CD), and iodine lavage (IL) – on stopping incision-related an infection after posterior lumbar interbody fusion. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sufferers with prolapsed lumbar (intervertebral) discs (PLID) present process posterior lumbar interbody fusion surgical procedure (PLIF) over the course of two years have been included and have been randomly allotted into four teams: the SL group, the PL group, the CD group, and the IL group. Related information have been recorded, together with preoperative circumstances, intraoperative lavage time, lavage fluid quantity, incision outlook, ache notion, outcomes of routine blood exams, and postoperative an infection price. RESULTS The PL, CD, and IL teams confirmed much less intraoperative lavage time, lavage quantity fluid, effusion, an infection price, and muscle and decrease ache notion in contrast with the SL group (all P<zero.05). Vital variations in white blood cell (WBC) depend, erythrocyte sedimentation price (ESR), and C-reactive protein (CRP) have been noticed between preoperative and postoperative information in every group (P<zero.01). No vital variations in scientific traits, postoperative temperature, suture elimination time, incision traits, WBC, ESR, and CRP have been noticed among the many PL, CD, IL, and SL teams (P>zero.05). CONCLUSIONS PL, CD, and IL all confirmed significantly better postoperative an infection prevention compared to SL.
