The free iodine is responsible for the antimicrobial activity. In vitro data have demonstrated significant residual bacterial counts when exposure time is limited. The antimicrobial effects of iodophors may be inhibited or neutralized by an organic compound such as blood. In addition, some S. aureus has been shown to be resistant to the antimicrobial effects of povidone-iodine. Adverse reactions to povidone-iodine include contact dermatitis and impaired wound healing secondary to its cytotoxic effects on fibroblasts and keratinocytes (the predominant cell type in the epidermis).

The paddle lead allows for a more efficient, unidirectional lead that may offer more stability. 1. P. R. com E. M. com A. A. R. E. P. Lad et al. Technical Overview The placement of a paddle electrode requires additional surgical skills as compared with the percutaneous placement of stimulation leads. Unlike the percutaneous cylindrical lead implantation, it does not require the ability to place a needle in the epidural space and to drive a lead. Placing a paddle lead through the open approach requires the surgical skills to safely dissect, expose the spinolaminar junction, and perform a small laminotomy, which allows for direct visualization while placing the lead (Fig.
