Antibiotic prophylaxis for GI endoscopy

Nov 15, 2016, 18:30 PM
Bacterial translocation of endogenous microbial flora into the bloodstream may occur during endoscopy because of mucosal (or deeper) trauma related to the procedure. Endoscopy-related bacteremia carries a small risk of localization of infection in remote tissues (ie, infective endocarditis [IE]). Endoscopy also may result in local infections in which a typically sterile space or tissue is breached and contaminated by an endoscopic accessory or by contrast material injection. This document is an update of the prior ASGE document on antibiotic prophylaxis for GI endoscopy,1 discusses infectious adverse events related to endoscopy, and provides recommendations for periprocedural antibiotic therapy.
