Summary of "Postsurgical Cataract Prophylaxis With Intravitreal "Triamcinolone-Moxifloxacin" May Not Be Optimal For Preventing Endophthalmitis."

Intravitreal injections of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories are used by some cataract surgeons for surgical prophylaxis. To support this prophylaxis, intravitreal triamcinolone-moxifloxacin (TM) and triamcinolone-moxifloxacin-vancomycin (TMV) were tested for preventing Staphylococcus aureus (SA) endophthalmitis in rabbits.
