The patient underwent a complicated cataract surgery (posterior capsule rupture and anterior vitrectomy) with implantation of a 3-piece foldable IOL in the sulcus and a recommended dose (1 mg/0.1 mL) of cefuroxime
was injected into the anterior chamber.
100% isolates of Pseudomonas and Proteus in our study were found resistant to Gentamycin, Cefuroxime
and TMP + SMZ.
Patients with or without penetrating keratoplasty were included in the study for whom phacoemulsification surgery was performed due to cataract and prophylactic intracameral cefuroxime
solution (Aprokam ([R])) was administered.
The antibiogram of gram positive cocci showed 100% sensitivity to vancomycin and Linezolid followed by high sensitivity to Azithromycin, Cefuroxime
while moderate sensitivity was observed to Cefoxitin, Levofloxacin Ampicillin and Amoxycillin/ clavulanic acid.
Commonly prescribed antibiotic in India for serious infectious diseases: cefuroxime
The urine culture showed Escherichia coli infection sensitive to cefuroxime
. The patient was discharged with oral cefuroxime
treatment on day 3 and catheter was removed on day 5.
coli showed high susceptibility to piperacillin-tazobactam, cefuroxime
, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, imipenem, gentamicin, nitrofurantoin, and fosfomycin, with annual resistance rates <10%; however, resistance to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, and cotrimoxazole, key antibiotics in the oral treatment of communityacquired UTIs, was recorded in at least 20-30% of E.
All uterine bacterial pathogens were sensitive to Gentamicin, Ceftriaxone and Cefuroxime
(100%), followed by Tetracycline and Chloramphenicol (92.8%), Ciprofloxacin and Cephalexin (85.7%), Ampicillin (71.5%) and Penicillin (50%).
On culture and sensitivity test, all the 4 isolated bacteria showed sensitivity to Cefuroxime
, Ceftriaxone and Ciprofloxacin in more than 50 % cases, while all the four bacteria showed resistance to amoxicillin in more than 50 % cases.
Background: Objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of cefuroxime
prophylaxis in controlling the postoperative wound infection in clean inguinal hernia mesh repair surgery and to compare single day and multiple (two) days antibiotic prophylaxis by means of hospital stay and cost effectiveness.
The combined effects between essential oils of cinnamon bark, lavender, marjoram, tea tree, peppermint and ampicillin, piperacillin, cefazolin, cefuroxime
, carbenicillin, ceftazidime, meropenem, were evaluated by means of the checkerboard method against beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli.
Group A received single dose preoperative antibiotic and group B received three-dose regimens of cefuroxime
. Postoperative infective complications were the primary endpoint.
We considered it a case of 'congenital fixed drug eruption' as it was reproduced by cefuroxime
These isolates were 100% resistant to tetracycline and cotrimoxazole, followed by amoxicillin (86.11%), cefuroxime
(80.56%) and chloramphenicol (69.44%) Table 2 shows that E.
The antimicrobial susceptibility of cefixime (19.5%), co-amoxiclav and cefotaxime (23.9% each), cefuroxime
(26.0%), ceftazidime and ceftriaxone (30.4%) was poor.
