Effect of Antibiotic on Surgical Site Infections

Effect of Antibiotic on Surgical Site Infections

Appendicitis is a disease of youth and 40% of its cases are between 10-29 years old. In current study which is based on Randomized Clinical Trial, we have examined the effect of antibiotic on surgical site infection in non-perforated appendicitis after appendectomy in patients admitted in Imam Khomeini of Sari and Razi of Qaemshahr hospitals. The study population included those who were from the beginning of the year (90) to (91) hospitalized due to acute appendicitis in the surgical wards of these two centers. In conclusion administration of antibiotic has no effect on surgical site infections so it should be accurately administrated due to costs, bacterial resistance and side effects.
