Abstract

The biliary penetration of cefamandole was studied in six patients with total biliary obstruction before and after placement of a transhepatic bile drainage catheter. Biliary levels of cefamandole remained depressed even when the drug was administered as late as 7 days after decompression of the biliary tract.
