The Effect of Local Antibiogram-Based Augmented Antibiotic Prophylaxis on Infection-Related Complications Following Prostate Biopsy – Summary:

Raoul S. Concepcion, MD, FACS, and E. David Crawford, MD, discuss a recent study Dr. Concepcion was involved with that looked at antibiotic-augmented prophylaxis based on local antibiograms as a method of reducing infections from prostate biopsies. They discuss the design and rationale of the study and methods for administering the prophylaxis, as well as the results, which showed a 53% reduction in infectious complications compared to historical data.
