|OBJECTIVES:The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between prophylactic antibiotic administration (PAA) and postoperative infection after radical cystectomy with urinary diversion in patients with invasive bladder cancer.CONCLUSIONS:Our data showed that PAA with TAZ/PIPC with a shorter duration PAA (48 h) might be recommended for RC with urinary diversion. We found that the surgical time was significantly shorter in the non-infection group. A prospective study based on our data is desirable to establish or revise PAA strategy for prophylactic medication to prevent postoperative infection after RC with urinary diversion.
