Results: From the articles studied, categories were constructed: Interventions for pain control; Interventions for the control of exudate; Interventions for the control of odor and Interventions for the control of bleeding.


Conclusion: Most of the studies were bibliographical research originating from opinions of authorities and / or reports of committees of experts in the area. Therefore, it is urgent to carry out randomized clinical trials.
