OBJECTIVES Infected hip hemiarthroplasties (HHA) are classically analyzed along with infected total hip arthroplasties (THA), but patients with either one or other device are different. We describe the clinical presentation, etiology and prognosis of infected HHA compared with infected THA. METHODS Comparative study of patients with infected HHA and THA(More)
Serious Enterococcus faecalis infections usually require combination therapy to achieve a bactericidal effect. In orthopedic infections, the prognosis of enterococcal etiology is considered poor, and the use of aminoglycosides is questioned. The ampicillin-ceftriaxone combination has recently been accepted as alternative therapy for enterococcal(More)
OBJECTIVES In the era of emergence of MDR Pseudomonas aeruginosa, osteoarticular infections (OIs) add more difficulties to its treatment. The role of β-lactams (BLs) is questioned and older drugs need to be reconsidered. The objective of this study was to describe our experience in the management of OIs caused by MDR P. aeruginosa and evaluate different(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical features, microbiological spectrum, diagnostic procedures and outcomes in native joint pyogenic arthritis among non-intravenous drug users. METHODS We collected all microbiologically proved cases of infectious arthritis at our hospital between 1992 and 2013. Patients with prosthetic joint infection were excluded, as were(More)
BACKGROUND The site of acquisition of infection may have a major impact on outcome. The health care-related (HCR) environment has recently come under scrutiny. In a group of patients with bacteremic septic arthritis (SA), we compared their characteristics, type of SA, microbiology and prognosis according to the site of acquisition: community-acquired (CA),(More)
Calcific myonecrosis is a rare post-traumatic sequela almost exclusively located in the lower extremity, which can be mistaken for an aggressive primary neoplasm. This lesion, initially described by Gallei and Thompson in 1960, is characterized by the formation of a calcified mass that appears decades after trauma. The pathophysiologic mechanism is not(More)
Pyogenic arthritis of native joints due to Bacteroides fragilis seems to be an infrequent disease. We analyzed the cases diagnosed in a tertiary hospital during a 22-year period and reviewed the literature to summarize the experience with this infectious entity.In our institution, of 308 patients with pyogenic arthritis of native joints, B fragilis was the(More)
