The Effect of Local Antibiogram–based Augmented Antibiotic Prophylaxis on Infection-related Complications Following Prostate Biopsy
Dr. Gary Kirsh, president of The Urology Group, was a co-author in this article, recently published in Reviews in Urology.
“Given the number of prostate biopsies performed annually in the United States and associated infectious events as a result, we sought to determine if implementation of a standardized biopsy protocol utilizing antibiotic prophylaxis based on locally derived antibiograms would result in a decrease, relative to a contemporary control population, in the incidence of infection-related complications among community-based practices.”
