Antibiotic Prophylaxis Several studies have clearly shown that antimicrobial prophylaxis significantly reduces the posttransplant infection rates for both living donor and cadaveric renal transplant [20]. The regimen used for prophylaxis, however, has not been well defined. Single drug regimen is as effective as multidrug regimens, and cefazolin is as effective as ceftriaxone in preventing SSIs. 2). For patients with β-lactam allergy, an agent effective against Gram positive cocci (clindamycin or vancomycin) given in combination with an agent effective against Gram negative rods (aztreonam or fluoroquinolone) are reasonable alternatives.

Familiarity with the epidemiology, risk factors, and time line of posttransplant infections, and surgical techniques and complications is necessary to design appropriate antimicrobial prophylaxis. Preventing infections is the most important method for improving both short-term and long-term morbidity and mortality of organ transplant recipients. References 1. Fishman JA.
