The authors discuss the problem of dental treatment of subjects after organtransplantation, in particular from the aspect of self-handed dentists. Consistent with the viewof the German professional society for dental, oral and maxillary medicine (DGZMK) and otherprofessional sources, they recommend for antibiotic prophylaxis of the „single shot“ typeprimarily a combination of amoxicillin and metranidazol. They advise to base the selection ofoptimal continuous adjuvant antibiosis for prophylaxis in planned treatment during consecutive sessions on results of a molecular-biological tests (e.g. micro-Dent). The authors mentionthe principle of the original collection of biological material (so-called POCKET-OUT) accordingto Smola and Rettenberg for asessment of the main oral pathogens not only from the sulcusbut also from the gingival surface. In a table they summarize the problem of antibioticprophylaxis in the treatment of adult patients after transplantations.

Key words:
organ transplantation – antibiotic prophylaxis – molecular-biological tests –amoxicillin – metronidazol
