    The latest Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery has two papers on pre-operative skin preparation for foot and ankle surgery. Good to see such mundane and taken for granted topics getting attention:

    Efficacy of Surgical Preparation Solutions in Foot and Ankle Surgery
    Roger V. Ostrander, Michael J. Botte and Michael E. Brage
    Preoperative Skin Preparation of the Foot and Ankle: Bristles and Alcohol Are Better
    David J. Keblish, David Zurakowski, Michael G. Wilson, and Christopher P. Chiodo

    Does anybody know of an alternative to iodine as a pre-operative swab for nail avulsion available in Australia? I have a patient with an iodine allergy who requires partial nail avulsion? Thanks

    Bethy, if you don't get a reply from anyone on this site, try contacting the theatre at a hospital. The theatre staff should be able to help you. Wouldn't mind knowing the answer me self....Good luck!!
