The Role of Oral Antibiotics in Preventing Surgical Infections

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a common complication that can occur after surgery. They are caused by the invasion of microorganisms into the surgical wound, resulting in inflammation and infection. These infections can lead to prolonged hospital stays, additional surgical procedures, and even death. The use of oral antibiotics is one approach to prevent SSIs, and this article will discuss their role in preventing surgical infections. Antibiotics are drugs that can kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. They can be administered in various ways, including orally, intravenously, or topically. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections, but they can also be used prophylactically to prevent infections from occurring. Prophylactic antibiotics are given before surgery to reduce the risk of SSIs.
