6.7 Appendix 7Health economics evidence tables

This section provides evidence tables that summarise the data provided in the published economic evaluations identified for the purpose of this guideline. Two modelling studies (Bor and Himmelstein, 1984 and Tzukert et al, 1986) were also reviewed but since they did not consider costs, no further details are presented here.

Note: Economic evaluations that examined antibiotic prophylaxis for individuals with joint disease/ prosthetic joints undergoing dental procedures were excluded from detailed consideration since they do not consider the relevant patient population covered by this guideline.

Published economic evaluations were quality assessed using methods as described in the current Guidelines methods manual.
