Preoperative hair removal has been used to prevent surgical site infections (SSIs) or to prevent hair from interfering with the incision site. We aimed to update the meta-analysis of published randomized controlled trials about hair removal for the prevention of SSIs, and conduct network meta-analyses to combine direct and indirect evidence and to compare(More)
The identification of temporal clusters of healthcare-associated colonizations or infections is a challenge in infection control. WHONET software is available to achieve these objectives using laboratory databases of hospitals but it has never been compared with SaTScan regarding its detection performance. This study provided the opportunity to evaluate the(More)
PURPOSE To report the incidence and characteristics of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents or corticosteroids and to describe the clinical and bacteriologic characteristics, management, and outcome of these eyes with acute endophthalmitis in France. DESIGN Retrospective, nationwide multicenter(More)
This meta-analysis aimed to estimate the prevalence of human metapneumovirus (hMPV) infections in patients hospitalized for acute respiratory infection (ARI) and to study factors associated with this prevalence. Medline and ScienceDirect databases were searched for prospective observational studies that screened hospitalized patients with ARI for hMPV by(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. A patient was recently found to be HCV seropositive during hemodialysis follow-up. OBJECTIVE To determine whether nosocomial transmission had occurred and which viral populations were transmitted. DESIGN HCV transmission case. SETTING A dialysis unit in a French(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical site infections are major surgical complications. Surgical site scrubbing before painting is controversial. AIM To conduct a meta-analysis of clinical trials that compared pre-operative scrubbing before painting with painting alone for the prevention of surgical site infections. METHODS A systematic review and meta-analysis of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the proportion of transfer letters that contained information relative to infection or colonization by multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria and factors associated with the presence of that information. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients for whom at least one of these selected MDR bacteria (methicillin-resistant(More)
We investigated temporal clusters of Pseudomonas aeruginosa cases between 2005 and 2014 in 1 French university hospital, overall and by ward, using the Kulldorff method. Clusters of positive water samples were also investigated at the whole hospital level. Our results suggest that water outlets are not closely involved in the occurrence of clusters of P(More)
AIM We aimed to study the impact of new water systems, which were less contaminated with P. aeruginosa, on the incidence of healthcare-associated P. aeruginosa cases (colonizations or infections) in care units that moved to a different building between 2005 and 2014. METHODS Generalized Estimated Equations were used to compare the incidence of P.(More)
