篇名 Prophylactic antibiotics and percutaneous nephrolithotomy
作者 Beuy Joob
卷期/出版年月 50卷6期 (2017/12)
頁次 231-231
摘要 Dear Editor, the publication on “Prophylactic antibiotics and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL)” by Yang et al. is very interesting.[1] Yang et al. concluded that “The second‑line prophylactic antibiotic use for tubeless PCNL does not offer additional benefit over the first‑line prophylactic antibiotic in the prevention of postoperative fever or shortening of the postoperative hospital stay.[1]” In fact, the use of either first‑ or second‑line prophylaxis antibiotic is usually a controversial issue in surgical infection control. As noted by Lai and Assimos, “despite prophylaxis, postoperative sepsis has continued to remain the leading cause of mortality in PCNL patients.[2]” In addition, the common forgotten issue is on the possible adverse effect due to antibiotic use. As suggested by Viers et al., “counseling patients on the risks of perioperative antimicrobial therapy at PCNL” is needed.[3] Finally, Yang et al. might focus only on the hospital stay but forget other dimensions (such as surgical‑ and drug‑related complication, quality of life, patient and cousin acceptance, and cost of the prophylaxis).
