Abstract:   (2339 Views)
210 Iranian women participated in a study in two main categories (comprising six subgroups) for comparison of prophylactic antibiotic prescription by the intravenous route with the irrigation method together with control subgroups. Interesting results from our study were: 1- There was no significant statistical difference between subgroups with regard to infectious morbidity. 2- The rate of early infectious morbidity in our patients was lower than in American studies. 3- Late infections were more common than early infections in our study. 4- The rate of late endometritis in the irrigation subgroup under category of labor lasting less than six hours was significantly lower than the irrigation subgroup in the category of labor lasting more than six hours. We think that the results of a particular study investigating the usefulness of prophylactic use of antibiotics at cesarean section from one country is not necessarily relevant for another country having a different culture and customs.
