In the 1st group (2 grams regimen) 2 grams intravenous antibiotic was injected after cord clamp and in the 2nd group (seven days regimen ) on the first day after operation , 1 gram intravenous antibiotic was injected 6- hourly and then oral antibiotic was prescribed for seven days. Findings: Wound infection was seen in 1 patient (4.16%) in the 1st group and 1 patient (4.3%) in the 2nd group. In seven days regimen , two patients had fever after operation with unknown origin .
