Surgical site infections (SSIs) are among the most common serious complications after surgery and associated with preventable morbidity, mortality, and increased health care costs. The use of surgical antimicrobial prophylaxis (SAP) is an effective measure that helps to protect against SSIs. This study aims to evaluate the knowledge, attitude, and practice of surgical staff towards preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis in surgery department at an academic tertiary hospital in Sudan. An observational descriptive study was conducted among doctors in the surgery department at an academic tertiary hospital in Sudan in order to assess their knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) towards surgical antibiotic prophylaxis (SAP). A four-section multiple-choice questionnaire was designed and hand-delivered to registered doctors in the surgery department at an academic tertiary hospital in Sudan. The WHO guidelines were used to evaluate the answers of the participants. Out of 56 doctors requested to participate in

Background The incidence of surgical site infection in bariatric patients is significant and the current recommendations for antibiotic prophylaxis are sometimes inadequate. Objective The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of three prophylactic antibiotic regimens on the incidence of surgical site infection. Methods A prospective, cross-sectional study was conducted between January 2009 and January 2013 in which 896 Roux-en-Y gastric bypasses were performed to treat obesity. The study compared three groups of patients according to the perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis administered intravenously and beginning at anesthesia induction: Group I consisting of 194 patients treated with two 3-g doses of ampicillin/sulbactam; Group II with 303 patients treated with a single 1-g dose of ertapenem; and Group III with 399 patients treated with a 2-g dose of cefazolin at anesthesia induction followed by a continuous infusion of cefazolin 1g throughout the surgical procedure. The rate of surgical ...

Background: Prophylactic antibiotic therapy is given routinely in the peri-operative period to prevent surgical site infection. However, in pediatric cardiac surgery, an optimal schedule has not been defined. Pediatric recommendations follow the guidelines for adults, which might be improper because of the inherent challenges in pediatric research and the heterogeneity of the population. Implementation of an effective prophylaxis protocol is needed for children undergoing cardiac surgery, especially in view of worldwide antibiotic overuse and the development of drug resistance. In this review, we analyze the current knowledge supported by up-to-date publications about antibiotic prophylaxis in pediatric cardiac surgery.. Methods: The PubMed® database was searched for full-text journal articles describing peri-operative antibiotic prophylaxis in pediatric cardiac surgery published since 2000. Antibiotics used for standard prophylaxis with dosing schema, time of the first dose, additional dosage ...
Antibacterial prophylaxis after chemotherapy for solid tumors and lymphomas BACKGROUND: The role of prophylactic antibacterial agents after chemotherapy remains controversial. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in patients who were receiving cyclic chemotherapy for solid tumors or lymphoma and who were at risk for temporary, severe neutropenia (fewer than 500 neutrophils per cubic millimeter). Patients were randomly assigned to receive either 500 mg of levofloxacin once daily or matching placebo for seven days during the expected neutropenic period. The primary outcome was the incidence of clinically documented febrile episodes (temperature of more than 38 degreesC) attributed to infection. Secondary outcomes included the incidence of all probable infections, severe infections, and hospitalization but did not include a systematic evaluation of antibacterial resistance. RESULTS: A total of 1565 patients underwent randomization (784 to placebo and 781 to ...
PARITY is the first ever multi-centre, international, prospective randomized trial in the field of orthopaedic oncology. The trial will enroll 600 patients and compare the rates of deep infection in endoprosthetic reconstruction of the lower limb between two post-operative prophylactic antibiotic durations (24 hours and 5 days).. The risk for deep infection is at least 10 times higher in sarcoma reconstructive surgery than in non-cancer reconstructive surgery. Deep infection has devastating effects for patients, often resulting in limb amputation. The research question is based on longstanding uncertainty about the prophylactic antibiotic needs of patients undergoing limb salvage of the lower extremity with endoprosthetic reconstruction. A survey of orthopaedic oncologists determined that although the practice of antibiotic prophylaxis varies from surgeon to surgeon, there is overwhelming support for a randomized trial to answer this clinical question.. Hospitals from around the world are ...
Background: Although it has been a popular practice to use preventative antibiotics for the kidney recipients, it could increase the cost, encourage the growth of resistant micro-organism and have adverse effects. There has been no reported concrete evidence about the benefits and risks of using peri-operative prophylactic antibiotics for an immunosuppressed population. Therefore, we retrospectively evaluated the differences in the incidences of bacterial infection and adverse events after transplant surgery according to using peri-operative prophylactic antibiotics ...
A total of 11 randomised controlled trials (2867 participants) were included in the review. No new studies were identified in this update. All studies included breast cancer patients and were based in the hospital setting. Ten studies evaluated preoperative antibiotic compared with no antibiotic or placebo. One study evaluated perioperative antibiotic compared with placebo or no antibiotic. Pooling of the results demonstrated that prophylactic antibiotics administered preoperatively probably reduce the incidence of SSI for patients undergoing breast cancer surgery without reconstruction (pooled risk ratio (RR) 0.67, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.53 to 0.85; moderate certainty evidence). Anticipated absolute effects were calculated for the outcome incidence of SSI; 105 per 1000 for the none or placebo group and 71 per 1000 (95% CI 56 to 89) for the preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis group. Analysis of the single study comparing perioperative antibiotic with no antibiotic was inconclusive for ...
OBJECTIVES: Misuse of antibiotics in surgical prophylaxis is still quite common. The objectives of this study were to reduce the quantity and improve the quality of surgical prophylaxis and to reduce costs. METHODS: Prospective multi-site study of elective procedures in 13 Dutch hospitals. The quality of prophylaxis was audited before and after an intervention consisting of performance feedback and implementation of national clinical practice guidelines. Process outcome parameters were antibiotic choice, duration, timing, antibiotic volume and costs. Segmented regression analysis was used to estimate the effect size of the intervention. Patient outcome was documented by the incidence of surgical site infections (SSI). RESULTS: Before the intervention, 1763 procedures were recorded and 2050 thereafter. Antimicrobial use decreased from 121 to 79 DDD (defined daily doses)/100 procedures and costs reduced by 25% per procedure. After the intervention, antibiotic choice was inappropriate in only 37.5% ...
During the period of neutropenia due to chemotherapy, patients have high risk of infections. The use of antibiotic prophylaxis to reduce neutropenia-related complications in oncologic patients is still disputed. Recent meta-analysis and clinical trials demonstrated that antibiotic prophylaxis with chinolons reduces fever episodes, bacterial infections and mortality in adult oncologic patients with neutropenia due to chemotherapy for acute leukaemia. In paediatric patients, the only randomized, double-blind, prospective study up till now suggested that Amoxicillin clavulanate may represent an effective prophylactic treatment to reduce fever and infections in oncologic children with neutropenia, with an efficacy statistically demonstrated only in patients with acute leukaemia. Considering the risk of resistances, antibiotic-prophylaxis should be used only in selected patients ...

For these patients, any dental procedure may cause bleeding, and prophylactic antibiotic administration is recommended as a preventive measure.. Other patients who require prophylactic antibiotics The American Association of Endodontists extends recommendations to patients who have undergone joint replacement surgery within the past two years, suffer from type 1 diabetes, or have immune deficiencies from diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or HIV; cancer patients whose immune systems are suppressed because of radiation or chemotherapy; people who have had organ transplants; and hemophiliacs.. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry also includes people who suffer from sickle cell anemia, as well as patients who suffer from conditions that require chronic steroid therapy.. Typical endodontic procedures for which antibiotic prophylaxis is recommended include root canal therapy (when it involves going deeper than the root apex), surgical tooth extractions, and any other dental, ...
Antibiotics have a well-documented efficacy in the treatment of established infections and as prophylactic agents in medically compromised patients. However, the systematic administration of antibiotics to prevent local infections in fit patients is much more controversial. The aim of this paper is to reflect on the justification for prophylactic usage of antibiotics to prevent wound infection and to reason out the most appropriate antibiotic guidelines taking into account available scientific data and studies by other authors. Numerous clinical trials question the efficacy of antibiotics in preventing wound infection. While some studies establish that antibiotics reduce the incidence of postoperative infections, others compare their efficacy to that of placebo. Thus, scientific literature suggests that every oral surgical intervention is not tributary of systematic antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent local infections. Intrinsic surgical risk factors and the patients individual circumstances must ...

These recommendations represented a major departure from the traditional practice of IE prophylaxis. The committee wanted to shift emphasis away from a focus on antibiotic prophylaxis prior to a single procedure to recommendations that place a much greater emphasis on improved access to dental care and oral health in patients with underlying cardiac conditions. "High-risk" patients were defined not on the basis of an increased risk for IE, but rather on an increased risk of an adverse outcome should they develop endocarditis.. The new guideline, which generated considerable controversy among physicians, dentists, and patients, represented a paradigm shift from traditional dogma and was based on expert consensus rather than on any compelling new data or evidence. In fact, one might argue that it was really a consensus document-and not an evidence-based guideline.. Health care providers have been reluctant to stop a practice that they had been taught was necessary to prevent a devastating event ...

Inappropriate use of prophylactic antibiotics can increase the rates of surgical site wound infections, lead to the development of resistant organisms and to increased health care costs. Despite widespread knowledge of standard antibiotic prophylaxis protocols (SAPs) in implant surgeries, it is thought that many Nigerian surgeons do not comply. The purpose of this study was to determine the awareness of Nigerian orthopaedic surgeons of SAPs in implant surgeries and their compliance. This was an observational study done using a questionnaire to collect data from orthopaedic surgeons at the National Orthopaedic Association annual conference held at Lokoja, Nigeria in November 2013. There were 66 respondents divided into 56 consultants and ten surgical residents. Most respondents were aware of standard guidelines for the use of prophylactic antibiotics (86.36 %). Many of them (63.63 %) did not know the average rate of infection following implant surgery in their institutions. Compliance with SAPs was found
Urinary tract infections are amongst the most frequent nosocomial infections followed by surgical site infections (SSI). Antibiotic prophylaxis is only one way to reduce the risk of post-operative infection.

In response to Dr. Jacobsons letter, although 27 participants did receive antibiotic prophylaxis, they constituted only 21% of the 127 participants who had dental treatment in the 3-month period. More important, among those with indications for antibiotics (that is, patients with previously known cardiac valve abnormalities undergoing dental work), only 17 of 29 (59%) case-patients with dental treatment received antibiotic prophylaxis, compared with 3 (50%) of 6 controls (P = 1.0). In fact, the unadjusted odds ratio for the association between dental therapy and infective endocarditis was 0.5 (95% CI, 0.01 to 9.6) among those with antibiotic prophylaxis, compared with 0.3 (CI, 0.01 to 4.2) among those without antibiotic prophylaxis. Thus, not only were our results not due to widespread use of prophylaxis, but they also did not suggest a protective effect ...

Experimental: rVIII-SingleChain - Subjects will be assigned to either an on-demand or prophylaxis regimen and will receive rVIII-SingleChain as an intravenous (IV) infusion. Subjects assigned to a prophylaxis regimen will be treated with 15 to 50 IU/kg of rVIII-SingleChain every second day or 2 to 3 times per week, or at the investigators discretion, based on available PK data, the FVIII treatment regimen used before enrollment and/or the subjects bleeding phenotype. The dose for on-demand treatment of a bleeding episode is based on the recommendations of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), with a minimum dose of 15 IU/kg. All subjects were to be treated for a minimum of 50 EDs. For the PK evaluation, the subjects will receive a single IV dose of 50 IU/kg of rVIII-SingleChain on Day 1 at the start of the PK evaluation period ...
14 November 2017. Using antibiotics to prevent surgical site infections is the most common indication for antimicrobial use in Australian hospitals. However, there are high rates of inappropriate use.. 40% of prescriptions for surgical prophylaxis were found to be inappropriate in the 2015 National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey. This is problematic because it contributes to overuse of antibiotics, and exposes patients to potential adverse effects.. During World Antibiotic Awareness Week (13-19 November), a special release article from Australian Prescriber urges health professionals to conserve the usefulness of antibiotics by practising appropriate antimicrobial prescribing during surgery.. One of the authors, Professor Karin Thursky, Director of the National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship, says a common finding is that patients are continued on oral antibiotics after surgery. There may be several reasons for this, but it may be driven by individual surgeons beliefs that it helps ...
With the advent of bacterial resistance, it is important now more than ever to evaluate use of antibiotic chemoprophylaxis in foot and ankle surgery. Within this area of the body there may be less dissection, surgery time with smaller incisions and importantly smaller sizes of implanted fixation as compared to other bone and joint procedures. Our objective was to systematically evaluate the quality of evidence behind existing guidelines. A systematic literature search was performed: MEDLINE, CINHAL, EMBASE and the Cochrane library from 1990 up to March 2018. To avoid omitting any studies on the subject, Google Scholar was also used. The inclusion criterion were studies exploring perioperative antibiotic use, postoperative infection rates in elective foot and ankle surgery and studies associated with this subject evaluating antibiotic use in clean elective foot and ankle surgery. The exclusion criterion being studies upon contaminated or dirty surgery or those which were inclusive of procedures proximal
Background: Bacteriuria with gram-negative bacilli and enterococci following kidney transplantation (KT) is common and has been linked to poor outcomes, including graft rejection. In 2012, our KT surgical antimicrobial prophylaxis protocol was changed from cefazolin to ampicillin-sulbactam in an attempt to decrease enterococcal urinary tract infections.. Methods: Urine isolates (ISO) for 1 year after transplant for 1165 KTs from 2007-2011 and 587 KTs from 2013-2015 were reviewed. KTs during 2012 were excluded as a protocol transition period. The first ISO of each organism per KT recipient was included. ISO were stratified by time post-KT. We aimed to compare rates of bacteriuria and organisms isolated as well as graft survival before and after the protocol switch. Results: KT recipients were 62% male with a median age of 51 years (range 18-84) and were similar between the two time periods. There were 555 ISO from 377 patients from 2007-2011 and 300 ISO from 196 patients from 2013-2015. There was ...

Antibiotic resistance.. It is extremely important to use such antibiotics at the right time. The first dose of a chosen drug should be given before the procedure. Usually, it is recommended to take it within thirty minutes before the operation. Generally, the administration after the surgery is not recommended.. Before you are prescribed with a certain antibiotic for prophylaxis, you should tell your healthcare provider if you use any other medications, which is important to avoid drug interaction.. If you do not have an urgent surgery, you can talk to your healthcare provider and find out all the relevant information on a particular prophylactic antibiotic, such as side effects, warnings, drug interaction, etc..
