BACKGROUND Sternal wound infection (SWI) is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication of cardiac surgery. Predisposing factors for SWI are multiple with varied frequencies in different studies. The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence, risk factors, and mortality of SWI after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) at Tehran(More)
BACKGROUND The risk of developing infection in diabetic patients is higher and urinary tract is the most common site for infection. Serious complications of urinary infection occur more commonly in diabetic patients. To study the prevalence and associates of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in women with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the Iranian population,(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes has been shown to be independent predictor of restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of the present study was to investigate whether a pre- and post-procedural glycaemic control in diabetic patients was related to major advance cardiovascular events (MACE) during follow up. METHODS We evaluated 2884(More)
Inflammatory biomarkers play a pivotal role in atherosclerotic lesions. The plasma levels of these markers are predictive of adverse outcomes such as myocardial infarction and cardiovascular death. The immune system is involved at all stages of atherogenesis via activation of monocytes/macrophages and T lymphocytes. Circulating proinflammatory cytokines and(More)
BACKGROUND Central venous (CV) catheters play an essential role in the management of critically ill patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). CV lines are, however, allied to catheter-associated blood stream infections. Bacterial colonization of CV lines is deemed the main cause of catheter-associated infection. The purpose of our study was to compare(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiomyopathies are myocardial disorders in which the heart muscle is structurally and functionally abnormal. Several mutations in sarcomere protein coding genes are responsible for different types of cardiomyopathies. ACTC1 is one of the main sarcomere components in heart muscle. Two mutations of E101K and M123V in this gene are shown to be(More)
The incidence of candidemia due to the uncommon non-albicans Candida species appears to be increasing, and certain species such as Candida (C.) membranaefaciens have been reported in some clinical researches. Vascular catheters are considered the likely culprit for the sudden emergence of hospital-acquired candidemia. The identification of C.(More)
BACKGROUND The emerge of rapid and accurate detection of Meticillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been highlighted. OBJECTIVES The current study evaluated the prevalence of mec-A gene in biological specimens of various medical wards, in order to determine any possible relationship. PATIENTS AND METHODS Using traditional culture methods, 250(More)
