PURPOSE To investigate microbiologic trends and role of biofilm on periorbital biomaterials surgically explanted for recalcitrant infection. METHODS A search of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine microbiology laboratory electronic database was conducted from 1980 to 2010. Culture results were analyzed from submitted periorbital biomaterials explanted for nonresolving infections or exposure. Random select samples cultured during the study were sent… CONTINUE READING
