Resumen

Introducción: La profilaxis antibiótica administrada de manera apropiada puede reducir el riesgo de infección hasta en un 50%.

 Se revisa la clasificación de herida quirúrgica, los determinantes de infección de la misma y la fisiopatología de la profilaxis antibiótica. Estos factores sirven de base para ofrecer recomendaciones de una adecuada profilaxis antibiótica, e indicar las situaciones en que se debe usar la misma.

Conclusiones; La utilización correcta de la profilaxis antibiótica previene la infección y evita consecuentemente trastornos físicos y psicológicos en el paciente. Por otro lado disminuye los altos costos hospitalarios.
