Investigation of the role of adding oral antibiotics to preoperative mechanical bowel preparation before colorectal surgery for cancer.
This study aims to demonstrate that a preoperative combination of mechanical bowel preparation and oral antibiotics, before elective laparoscopic rectal cancer surgery, is associated with ...
Enchanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols aim to provide safer and quicker recovery postoperatively. One of the elements in ERAS protocols is that bowel is not prepared before colo...
Infections after elective intestinal surgery remain a significant burden for patients and for the health care system. The cost of treating a single surgical site infection is estimated at ...
Although adequate bowel preparation is essential for successful colonoscopy, the 23% of patients had shown inadequate bowel preparation. Inadequate bowel preparation may results in incompl...
In the modern era of minimally invasive colorectal surgery and enhanced recovery pathways, the value of preoperative bowel preparation remains debated. In this review, we evaluate evidence regarding t...
Surgical site infections (SSI) are common complications after colorectal procedures and remain an important source of morbidity and costs. Preoperative oral antibiotic prophylaxis is a potential infec...
In the mid-2000s, most surgical leading societies assumed that mechanical bowel preparation (MBP) was not indicated in colonic surgery [1-4], and restricted to rectal surgery [1,5]. However, since 201...
Thank you for furthering the discussion on appropriateness of preoperative bowel preparation for elective colorectal surgery. The manuscript describes several important concepts in the evolution of pr...
Long-term oral antibiotic use in acne may be associated with a variety of adverse effects including antibiotic resistance, pharyngitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and breast and colon cancer. Spirono...
Toxic antibiotic of the mitomycin group, obtained from MITOMYCIN and also from Streptomyces ardus and other species. It is proposed as an antineoplastic agent, with some antibiotic properties.
The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.
A topically used antibiotic from a strain of Pseudomonas fluorescens. It has shown excellent activity against gram-positive staphylococci and streptococci. The antibiotic is used primarily for the treatment of primary and secondary skin disorders, nasal infections, and wound healing.
Programs and guidelines for selecting optimal ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS regimens in an effort to maintain antibiotic efficacy, reduce CROSS INFECTION related to ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE while managing satisfactory clinical and economic outcomes.
An antibiotic first isolated from cultures of Streptomyces venequelae in 1947 but now produced synthetically. It has a relatively simple structure and was the first broad-spectrum antibiotic to be discovered. It acts by interfering with bacterial protein synthesis and is mainly bacteriostatic.
