Whilst such surgery is classed as "clean-contaminated", the usefulness of and the most appropriate regimen for antibiotic prophylaxis in these patients are still debated. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of antibiotic prophylaxis for preventing surgical site infection (SSI) in people undergoing orthognathic surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical site infections (SSI) in orthognathic surgery are considered infrequent and without any important consequence for the final operative result. A procedure of epidemiological surveillance was implemented to determine the frequency of SSI in orthognathic surgery and to better document their risk factors. MATERIAL AND METHOD: This prospective study included all interventions in our orthognathic surgery department between September 1(st) 2006 and August 31(st) 2007...
