OBJECTIVES We describe treatment failure rates by antibiotic duration for prosthetic joint infection (PJI) managed with debridement, antibiotics and implant retention (DAIR). METHODS We retrospectively collected data from all the cases of PJI that were managed with DAIR over a 5 year period. Surgical debridement, microbiological sampling, early(More)
OBJECTIVES We describe rates of success for two-stage revision of prosthetic joint infection (PJI), including data on reimplantation microbiology. METHODS We retrospectively collected data from all the cases of PJI that were managed with two-stage revision over a 4 year period. Patients were managed with an antibiotic-free period before reimplantation, in(More)
The consequences of ethylene glycol intoxication are described in a 42 year old man who presented with a profound metabolic acidosis, cardiogenic shock and renal failure. The clinical and electrocardiographic findings suggested a myocarditis and this was confirmed by endomyocardial biopsy. The striking absence of neurological features in this patient(More)
Dust particles can be harmful for human health when inhaled. Particularly dangerous are submicrometer dust particles, which can contain traces of toxic elements and can easily penetrate into the human respiratory system. Thus, efficient devices for the air cleaning from submicrometer dust particles are needed. Recently, Katatani and Mizuno have proposed an(More)
In this work the results of electrohydrodynamic (EHD) secondary flow measurements in a spike-plate type electrostatic precipitator (ESP) are presented. In the investigated ESP two-sided and one-sided spike electrodes were used as a discharge electrodes. The results of 2D PIV measurements showed that flow pattern obtained for a different spike tips positions(More)
