Urology [SP]

Two hundred patients that underwent ESWL were randomized into 4 groups in order to determine the benefits of antibiotic prophylaxis.

All comparisons among groups were not statistically significant. Neither cephalosporin nor quinolone prophylaxis impacted significantly on bacteriuria rate after ESWL.

Thus, in patients without infected stones, urinary tract obstruction and ancillary procedures ESWL could be performed without prophylactic antibiotic regimes.
