Maintaining sterility in the operating room (OR) is essential for optimizing surgical outcome.¹ Many important aspects of gown design are often overlooked, including barrier efficiency, maintenance of sterility while robing, speed of robing and derobing, convenience, and comfort.² Remarkably, fewer than 8% of operations are free of breaches in sterile technique related to gown robing.³ We conducted this study to determine the acceptability, barrier efficiency, infection control, and comparability of a new surgical gown, the S-gown, with the traditional surgical gown.
