The infection of an implanted prosthetic material can have serious consequences on the tissue integration of the implant and the scarring process in the host, and may even necessitate replacement of the prosthesis. This study was designed to explore the in vitro effects of Staphylococcus aureus (Sa) and Staphylococcus epidermidis (Se) on polypropylene (PL) and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) prostheses. Fragments of PL and ePTFE were placed in a medium previously inoculated with Sa, Se… CONTINUE READING
