Absorption of intraperitoneally administered ampicillin (Pentrexyl [Belgium]; Penbritin, comparable US product) was studied in six patients with diffuse peritonitis, treated postoperatively with continuous peritoneal lavage. One liter of lavage solution containing 100mg/100 ml of ampicillin was exchanged each hour. Ten exchanges were performed daily for two days. During the whole exchange period high concentrations of ampicillin were present in the peritoneal cavity. Since the average… Expand
Effects of peritoneal lavage and dry cleaning on bacterial translocation in a model of peritonitis developed using cecal ligation and puncture.
According to this study, the cleaning of intraabdominal infections with dry gauze is more effective than the cleaning with physiological saline for the elimination of aerobic bacteria. Expand

In this age of cost consciousness, lavages with antibiotic solutions cannot at present be regarded as conventional medical therapy. Expand
Drugs and Dialysis
In patients with renal diseases, and particularly in uremics, drugs excreted by the kidney should be given only in case of nephrological and urological indications, and when other organs are involved, pharmacological agents excreting via extra-renal routes should be better preferred. Expand


Intraperitoneal administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics in patients with renal failure.
Broad-spectrum antibiotics (cephalothin, ampicillin, tetracycline, and two forms of chloramphenicol) were administered intraperitoneally during peritoneal dialysis to patients with essentially noExpand
The present study was undertaken to measure intraperitoneal concentrations of methicillin and tetracycline after systemic administration and conversely to determine serum concentrations of Methicillin after intra peritoneal administration. Expand
