This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

Our primary objectives are to determine to what extent antibiotic prophylaxis reduces the risk of postoperative infection in women having an elective total or subtotal hysterectomy by any route or technique, to establish which (if any) antibiotic regimen is most effective and to assess the risk of adverse effects.
