Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
The study seeks to define the potential benefits that an additional prophylactic protocol involving the use of povidone iodine and vancomycin powder on the incidence of PJI in high risk TJA patients. The potential benefits of these interventions are significant both from the perspective of reducing morbidity and mortality for the patient, and from a cost-effectiveness and value-based perspective. To this end, our study seeks to assess the direct and indirect costs associated with the treatment and control groups. We anticipate that the administration of a VPIP protocol will both reduce the incidence of PJI in high risk groups relative to the control arm and will demonstrate added value from a cost-effectiveness perspective. This study looks to examine off-label use of Vancomycin Powder and Povidone Iodine 10% solution. Both products are lawfully marketed in the United States. This study is not intended to be reported to the FDA as a well-controlled study in support of a new indication and there is no intent to use it to support any other significant change in the labeling or advertising of either drug. This study does not involve a route of administration, dose, patient population, or other factor that significantly increased the risk (or decreases the acceptability of the risk) associated with the use of the drug product. The routes and dosages being tested in this protocol are part of standard clinical care in most total joint arthroplasty surgeries.
Experimental: Povidone iodine and vancomycin powder
Experimental: Povidone iodine alone
Active Comparator: Vancomycin powder alone
Active Comparator: Conventional
neither povidone iodine, vancomycin powder, nor polymyxin/bacitracin irrigation
Drug: - Povidone iodine
To create the dilute solution, a staff member will draw up 17.5 mL of 10% povidone iodine with a syringe and mix it with 500 mL of normal saline, resulting in a dilution of 0.35% povidone iodine solution for use before wound closure.
Drug: - Vancomycin powder
2 grams of vancomycin powder will be applied to the wound and will be distributed so that approximately 1 gram is administered deep to the fascia and 1 gram superficial to the fascia
Other: - Conventional
No additional steps in management are required for the control arm of the study besides lavage with 1 L of isotonic sodium chloride solution without antibiotics. No vancomycin powder or dilute povidone iodine lavage would be utilized in this cohort
