Özet

Background: Preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis is one of the preventive measures for surgical site infections (SSIs). Very little data about the cost effectiveness of the appropriate duration of antibiotic prophylaxis in low- and middle-income countries are available. We aim to assess the cost effectiveness of the use of antibiotic prophylaxis for <24 hours to prevent neurosurgical infections in a middle-income country, Turkey.
