A Comparative Clinical Evaluation of Antimicrobial (Triclosan) Coated Suture Material with Non-Coated Suture Material against Common Bacterial Pathogens in Patients with Chronic Periodont (pp. 37-60) $45.00
Authors:  Kajol K Shah, SnehalAmberkar, Devanand Shetty, and Janani Vivek Iyer
Abstract:
Objective: To evaluate and compare the efficacy of resorbable sutures coated with antimicrobial agent (triclosan) versus non coated-resorbable sutures in periodontal flap surgery in patients with chronic periodontitis
Materials and Methods:

Study design: A randomized control study.
Detailed history was taken of 12 patients diagnosed with Chronic Periodontitis
Recordings of pocket depth, clinical attachment loss, gingival and periodontal indices were made.
Pre surgical scaling and root planning was performed
Flap surgery was performed after 1 month.
Simultaneous use of Antimicrobial coated sutures and non coated sutures was conducted on surgical sites.
Sutures removed after 8 days and stored in aseptic containers
Transport of samples for counting of total colony forming units
Transport of samples for CLSM test
Re-evaluation of periodontal status of patients was conducted after 3 months
Comparison and evaluation of results.

Statistical Analysis: Descriptive and analytical statistics was done. Normality of data was analysed by Shapiro-Wilk test. As the data did not follow normal distribution, non-parametric tests were used to analyze the data. The Mann Whitney U was used to check mean differences wherever appropriate.
Results: The results of the study showed a marked reduction in the biofilm formation on triclosan coated sutures when compared to plain (non-coated) sutures and an overall betterment of periodontal conditions in both cases.
Conclusion: Triclosan coated sutures can be safely used in periodontal surgical procedures.
