Primary Outcome Measures:
  • number of positive swab cultures [ Time Frame: From start surgery week until 48 hours post-operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    During surgery swabs will be taken before skin desinfection, after skin desinfection and at the end of the surgery.

    We will count the number of positive swab cultures taken from the webspace of their first and second toe and at the place of incision 48 hours post-operatively.


  • wound infection [ Time Frame: until 6 weeks postoperatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    we will count the number of wound infections, stated by Prezies, for a period of 6 weeks postoperatively


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Allergic events [ Time Frame: Until 6 weeks postoperatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    we will look at the number of allergic events occuring.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: chloride-hexidine soluted in alcohol

patients will have skin preparation with chloride-hexidine soluted in alcohol prior to their forefoot surgery.

Skin swabs will be taken prior to skin preparation, after skin preparation and after skin closure at the end of the operation

Procedure: skin preparation
skin preparation while be done either with chloride-hexidine 0,5% soluted in alcohol 70% or povidine-jodine 1% soluted in alcohol 70%
Active Comparator: povidine-jodine soluted in alcohol
skin perparation will be done with povidine-jodine soluted in alcohol prior to forefoot surgery.
Procedure: skin preparation
skin preparation while be done either with chloride-hexidine 0,5% soluted in alcohol 70% or povidine-jodine 1% soluted in alcohol 70%

Detailed Description:

It will be a comparative study in which we will swab cultures before skin preparation directly after skin preparation and at the and of the operation (hallux valgus correction and arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint.

There will be a quantitative and quality analysis of the swabs. We will also measure allergic reactions. During the post-operative period of 6 weeks we will measure the wound infections stated by Prezies.
