AbstractAim: to identify the knowledge produced and published regarding the most relevant actions in the control of surgical site infections (SSI) in neurosurgery amenable to intervention. Method: integrative review of articles published in Portuguese, English and Spanish in MEDLINE, CINAHL, LILACS, through the VHL, CAPES and PUBMED portals. Results: 23 publications were selected and analyzed, grouped into categories focusing on actions taken before, during and after surgery and surgical surveillance. Discussion: the non-operation of trichotomy, correct antibiotic prophylaxis, rigid aseptic technique in surgery, care with ventricular derivations, curative and postoperative surgical surveillance were considered relevant in the control of SSI in neurosurgery in the studies found. Conclusion: The evidence found will help to direct the actions of HICC nurses in the control of SSI in neurosurgery.
