This study is a multi-center open-label randomized study, and we sought to investigate the redundancy of post-procedural prophylactic antibiotics in cardiac implantable electronic device implantation. There are 2 arms in this study. One arm will receive pre-procedural intravenous antibiotics only. The other arm will receive both pre-procedural intravenous antibiotics and post-procedural 3-day oral antibiotics.
There is general agreement on the benefits of preoperative prophylactic antibiotics which had been documented in previous studies. Concerns of bacterial resistance and unnecessary cost, our prospective observational case-control study had suggested the redundancy of post-procedural antibiotics. In this well-designed study, we sought to investigate the efficacy of post-procedural antibiotics and confirm the hypothesis.

Nonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.
An acute infection caused by the spore-forming bacteria BACILLUS ANTHRACIS. It commonly affects hoofed animals such as sheep and goats. Infection in humans often involves the skin (cutaneous anthrax), the lungs (inhalation anthrax), or the gastrointestinal tract. Anthrax is not contagious and can be treated with antibiotics.
