Carriage of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae and the risk of surgical site infection after colorectal surgery: a prospective cohort study

Publication date2018
Abstract

Antibiotic prophylaxis covering enteric pathogens is essential in preventing surgical site infection (SSI) after colorectal surgery. Current prophylaxis regimens do not cover extended-spectrum beta lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-PE). We aimed to determine whether the risk of SSI following colorectal surgery is higher in ESBL-PE carriers than in non-carriers.
