Application of 1000 mg cefazolin sodium intra venously 1 hour before surgery
Drug: Gentamicins+cephazolin sodium
80 mg topically, intra-operative,single dose
Other Name: gentamicin
Active Comparator: gentamicin+ cefazolin sodium
Application of intravenous 1000 mg cefazolin sodium 1 hour before surgery + topical 80 mg gentamicin intraoperatively

Detailed Description:

This study is a single blind prospective randomized trial. To measure and compare the effectiveness intra-operative topical gentamicin application in tension-free inguinal hernia repair in contrast to intravenous peri-operative prophylactic cefazolin sodium and combination of gentamicin and cephazolin this study is designed.

The patients are grouped randomly in to two groups:

  • Group1;intravenous cefazolin sodium
  • Group2;topical gentamicin
  • Group3:topical gentamicin+intravenous cefazolin sodium

As a control group we decided to use the data of control groups ( without any prophylactic agent usage ) of previous studies done in our clinic and medical data base reviews.
