Steril gloves for laceraciones?

First10 EM - By Justin Morgenstern - November 14, 2022
Bottom line
The two biggest trials (Perelman and Zwaans) have very similar numbers, and although both have potential sources of bias, there is nothing that makes me think that bias would push the results in either direction. It is not possible to exclude a very small benefit, but I think we can be pretty comfortable that basic clean gloves are good enough for routine laceration repairs.
