  1. Cefazolin compared with cefoxitin for cesarean section prophylaxis : the use of a two-stage study design.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors used a two-stage design to compare the risk of endometritis in women undergoing non-elective cesarean section who received cefazolin prophylaxis (n=481) with those who received cefoxitin prophylaxis (n=1799).

    The primary data source for this study was an automated record linkage system which allowed the ascertainment of exposure(antibiotic prophylaxis) and preliminary ascertainment of outcome (post-partum endometritis) on a consecutive sample of women undergoing cesarean section between 1 April 1987 and 30 September 1989.

    Potentially important covariates not available in the automated data source were sampled by review of complete medical records of a random sample of each exposure-disease category of the cohort.
