BACKGROUND Most nosocomial urinary tract infections are associated with the long-term use of urinary catheters. Such urinary catheter-associated infections are caused by bacteria that reside in biofilms. We determined the distribution of fastidious/nonculturable bacteria in biofilm of urinary catheters and evaluated the availability of concurrent applying… CONTINUE READING
