The results of antibiotic prophylaxis in 148 patients with destructive acute surgical sicknesses of abdominal cavity being urgently operated in the Republican hospital of Baku city from 2011 to 2016 were analyzed. Sixty-five patients were in the basic group which had got as preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis 120-hour course of amoxiclav (amoxicillin in combination with clavulanic acid). Eighty-three patients were in the control group who have performed a surgical intervention with pre-operative 120-hour antibiotic prophylaxis by Claforan (cefotaxime) combining with Metrogel (metronidazole). Ýt was showed that applying antibiotic prophylaxis using amoxiclav positively lowered the frequency of as postoperative purulent-septic complications as recurring operations to 8.1%.
