Perioperative antimicrobial drug penetration into the cerebrospinal fluid in extended transsphenoidal surgery

Basic Information

Recruitment status Recruiting
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedPatient undergoing extended transsphenoidal surgery with lumbar drainage
Date of first enrollment31/10/2022
Target sample size10
Countries of recruitment
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)1) Preoperative administration: After insertion of lumbar drainage, 2 g of CTRX should be administered intravenously over 30 minutes to 1 hour (single dose), starting within 1 hour before the start of surgery. Intraoperative re-dose should be 12 hours after the initial dose; however, patients who re-dose will be dropped from the study (see Discontinuation Criteria). 2) Postoperative administration: 2 g of CTRX is administered once daily (every 24 hours) as an intravenous infusion over 30 minutes to 1 hour. The duration of administration should be up to day 7 (the day after surgery should be day 1).


Primary OutcomeCSF/blood concentration ratio of CTRX on day 1
Secondary OutcomeThe maximum concentration in CSF and blood, time to reach maximum concentration and half-life, trends in CTRX concentration in CSF, daily trends in CSF/blood concentration ratio of CTRX, CSF/blood ALB ratio and CTRX CSF migration, an association between surgical invasion and CTRX CSF migration, an association between surgery time and CSF migration, an association between general findings in CSF and CTRX CSF migration, blood inflammation findings and CTRX CSF migration, intraoperative CSF leakage score and CTRX CSF migration, BMI and CTRX CSF migration, antipyretic analgesics and CTRX CSF migration, time above the MIC for CTRX in CSF, CTRX assay
