Abstract

Fifty women were randomly given one, two, or three 2 gm parenteral doses of cefoxitin with placebo blinding perioperatively at abdominal hysterectomy. A single preoperative intramuscular dose was more efficient, less frequently associated with the development of bacterial resistance, and less expensive than two or three doses.
