The effectiveness of a single prophylactic dose of two broad spectrum antibiotics, during Caesarean section, was compared and evaluated. In 119 consecutive cases at the Cantonal Hospital in Winterthur, Switzerland, either 1 g i.v. cefotaxime or 1,2 g amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid were administered after clamping the umbilical cord during Caesarean section. The study shows that single dose prophylaxis of either regimen provides adequate cover in preventing morbidity in Caesarean section, in both high-risk and low-risk groups.
