Best Practice Statement: The use of topical antiseptic/antimicrobial agents in wound managementThis Best Practice Statement has been produced in accordance with the standards set out by the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE) collaboration (AGREE, 2003). A working group was formed as a result of concern arising from a paper published in the British Journal of Surgery on the VULCAN trial (Michaels et al, 2009). This clinical trial examined the use of topical antiseptic/antimicrobial agents for the treatment of leg ulcer patients, compared with standard non-antimicrobial therapy.
