This prospective study was performed to analyze the causes of infection-related skin-graft loss in a general population of plastic and reconstructive surgery patients. One hundred thirty-two patients who received either full- or split-thickness skin grafts to reconstruct soft-tissue defects were included. The tissue defects were grouped according to the(More)
The use of central venous catheters (CVC) for hemodialysis (HD) is the most common factor contributing to bacteremia in dialysis patients [1]. The relative risk for bacteremia in patients with CVC is sevenfold the risk for patients with primary arteriovenous fistulas [2]. Coagulase-negative staphylococci, followed by enterococci, are the most frequently(More)
Bronchoscopy has the potential to propagate infections. Bacterial translocation was hypothesised to be the cause of infections observed following bronchoscopy and this study was designed to assess the risk of bacterial translocation following rigid bronchoscopy in rats. A total of 30 rats were evaluated. The study group (n=15) underwent rigid bronchoscopy.(More)
Risk assessment of central nervous system (CNS) infection patients is of key importance in predicting likely pathogens. However, data are lacking on the epidemiology globally. We performed a multicenter study to understand the burden of community-acquired CNS (CA-CNS) infections between 2012 and 2014. A total of 2583 patients with CA-CNS infections were(More)
The aim of our study was to determine whether early internal fixation of major bone fractures helps prevent bacterial translocation in patients with multitrauma. Thirty-seven Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: (1) anesthesia only (n = 12); (2) the trauma group: tibia and femur fractures and moderate head trauma under anesthesia (n = 14);(More)
Acinetobacter spp. are opportunistic bacterial pathogens primarily associated with hospital-acquired infections and the spread of multidrug resistant Acinetobacter strains is a growing problem in terms of infection control. The aim of this study was to determine the clonal relationship between strains of nosocomial Acinetobacter baumannii by using rep-PCR(More)
BACKGROUND Drug resistance development is an expected problem during treatment with protease inhibitors (PIs), this is largely due to the fact that Pls are low-genetic barrier drugs. Resistance-associated variants (RAVs) however may also occur naturally, and prior to treatment with Pls, the clinical impact of this basal resistance remains unknown. In(More)
