Active Comparator: prophylactic antibiotics group
Patients in the prophylactic group will receive antibiotic treatment right after randomization with intravenous cefazolin 2 g (3 g for patients weighing ≥120 kg) within 60 minutes before ablation therapy.
Patients in the prophylactic group will receive antibiotic treatment right after randomization with intravenous cefazolin 2 g (3 g for patients weighing ≥120 kg) within 60 minutes before ablation therapy. Patients in the on-demand group will receive antibiotic therapy only when infection will be suspected or established. Antibiotics will be changed according to the antibiotic sensitivity test of cultured microorganisms.
No Intervention: on-demand antibiotics group
Patients in the on-demand group will receive antibiotic therapy only when infection will be suspected or established.
- Infection after radiofrequency ablation [ Time Frame: within 4 weeks after radiofrequency ablation ]Body temperature will be measured every 6 hour for 72 hour. Acetaminophen at 500 mg will be used when patients complain of pain or have a high grade fever over 39°C after the procedure. The numbers of peripheral blood leukocytes, as well as levels of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, C-reactive protein (CRP) and infection signs as above descriptions will be determined before, and at 24 hour, 3-7 day and 4 week after ablation therapy.
