Abstract

Use of antibiotic prophylactic (AP) in clean surgery is still controversial. We reviewed the literature of the last 10 years to identify the best way to approach the use of prophylactic antibiotic in thyroid surgery. In thyroid surgery, it is a highly controversial topic primarily due to the lack of evidence in "support" of or "against" antibiotic use. In this review, the authors analyze the literature on the use of AP in thyroid surgery in order to evaluate if the available data support or contradict this use routinely.
