Although vancomycin therapy has been suggested as a predictor of relapse of SAB, it has never been shown to be associated with persistent SAB. The purpose of this study was to examine the possible association of vancomycin therapy and persistence of SAB. Two groups of patients were retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
