Abstract

Objective: The aims of this study were (1) to investigate the changes in the serum concentration of prophylactically administrated vancomycin in the perioperative period of revision hip arthroplasty in penicillin/cephalosporin-allergic patients. (2) to assess whether the postoperative re-administration of vancomycin is needed. and (3) to determine the relationships of vancomycin serum concentration with blood loss, body weight, and fluid replacement in such patients.
