  1. Postoperative drains at the donor sites of iliac-crest bone grafts : A prospective, randomized study of morbidity at the donor site in patients who had a traumatic injury of the spine.

    Article - En anglais

    A prospective, randomized study was performed to assess the effectiveness of postoperative closed suction drainage.

    One hundred and twelve consecutive procedures involving autologous iliac-crest bone graft were performed, from December 29,1992, to July 1,1993, following a traumatic injury of the spine in 108 patients.

    Sixty of the sites from which the bone graft had been obtained were drained with a single large Hemovac device.

    The drains were maintained for two to five days postoperatively.

    The remaining fifty-two incisions were closed without a drainage device.

    All patients were evaluated clinically for problems with wound-healing.

    The incisions were considered to be healed when they had been asymptomatic for one year.

    Of eleven patients who had problems with wound-healing, six had been managed with a drain and five had not.

    The findings of this study do not support the routine use of drainage at the donor sites of iliac-crest bone grafts.
