The study was conducted among 273 donors who underwent hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy for transplantation. Prophylactic antibiotics reduced the risk of postoperative infections: 23 versus 40.7 per cent (P=0.001), including surgical site infection 10.1 versus 20.7 per cent, P=0.012.Pubmed Link
