Medics: antibiotics after surgery may be unnecessary

Experts from the Biomedical research Institute in Los Angeles conducted a global study on the impact of antibiotics on the process of wound healing after the removal of the Appendix. Only the researchers assessed a total of 411 cases. Some patients received antibiotics after the surgery, the other was treated without antibiotics, writes NDTV. It is important to note that among the cases met complicated forms of appendicitis.

Scientists have not noticed any difference in the two groups. The percentage of complications after surgery were similar and did not depend on antibiotics. Another interesting fact: people who took antibiotics, was performed at the hospital on average one day more.

Doctors agree that antibiotics are a powerful weapon against infections, if you use it wisely. The appointment of antibacterial therapy mindlessly can lead to a number of complications of the underlying disease.
