Effect of antibiotic prophylaxis in percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.

Thirty-three patients completed a prospective double-blind, randomized study to compare the effect of antibiotic prophylaxis or placebo on percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy-associated wound infections. We define wound infection and arrive at an incidence of 29.4% in patients receiving Cefoxitin antibiotic prophylaxis and 31.2% in patients receiving placebo. Based on these results, we do not recommend antibiotic prophylaxis for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube placement.[1]
