Los implantes de colágeno con gentamicina en la reducción de la infección del sitio quirúrgico

Los autores de este trabajo realizaron una revisión sistemática y un meta-análisis de todos los ensayos clínicos randomizados, relacionados con las esponjas de colágeno impregnadas con gentamicina, para determinar si esos implantes de colágeno-gentamicina reducen la infección del sitio quirúrgico.
