Hey everyone, I know its been a while since Ive posted, but Ive been looking for an article/manuscript (whatever, peer reviewed and legit) for a while now (like months, every now and again I research for it) but have been unable to find it. Basically, Ive heard by several people, that there is an article (probably from Europe) that shows no increased complication/infection rate when doing surgery WITHOUT sterile gloves. Supposedly, these people also claim that not wearing gloves is SOP in some European countries (even human surgeries). Ive looked, but havnt found it. Maybe it doesnt exist. Maybe I suck at googleing. Anyone know anything about this? Ever seen the article(s)? Know anyone who does (sterile) surgeries without gloves? I am just curious Ive been having some debates lately about the limitations of evidence based medicine vs. common sense (take a look at the ridiculous paper published this year in JAVMA concerning GDVs and you will get my drift). Thanks for reading. Big thanks if you find anything PS: If you find a paper that compares gloves vs. gloveless and the sterile gloves wins over that works as well, I am just trying to get to the bottom of this (so I can concentration on the NAVLE).
