Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate glove contamination and perforation rate during traumatic orthopedic surgeries and evaluate the factors affecting glove contamination and perforation. There were significant differences in glove contamination among different surgery stages. In terms of contamination and perforation, there were significant differences between surgeons and assistants (ie, scrub-nurses).
