Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Antibiotic levels in bone and fat were measured in patients undergoing knee replacement to determine the time that should elapse between intravenous injection and tourniquet inflation. The tissue levels increased progressively with time, and there was wide variation in absorption rate between patients and between the two cephalosporins assessed. Five minutes should probably be left between systemic injection and inflation of the tourniquet, though two minutes may be long enough for drugs which are rapidly absorbed.
