Keywords:Duration of surgery, Antibiotic, Pre-operative
Background: We conducted a study to compare the duration of surgery in single dose intravenous antibiotic prophylaxis over no antibiotic prophylaxis in the prevention of wound infection following Lichtenstein tension free inguinal hernioplasty
Methods: This prospective study was conducted in the Department of Surgery, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Government Medical College Kangra at Tanda from May 2018 to December 2019after being approved by institutional protocol review committe and ethics committee.50 patients were included in the study.These patients were randomised into two groups i.e. Group A (Antibiotic Group) and Group B (Non-antibiotic Group).
Results: The mean duration of surgery in Antibiotic group (Group-A) was 56.6±15.66 minutes whereas it was 50.2±9.62 minutes in Non-antibiotic group (Group-B). The mean duration of surgery was more in Antibiotic group (Group-A) as compared to Non-antibiotic group (Group-B), however the difference was not statistically significant (p= 0.088).
