Sternal Wound Infections (SWI) represent a dangerous complication after cardiac surgery entailing significantly longer hospital stays and worse short-term survival, especially in case of deep infections (DSWI) with the onset of osteomielitis or mediastinitis. The real incidence of SWI can be estimated between 0.25% and 10%; among the risk factors for sternal dehiscences after a longitudinal median sternotomy, several experiences underline the role of diabetes as an independent risk factor for post-operative infections, especially in patients affected by COPD with higher BMI...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of full-mouth debridement (subgingival scaling and root planning, SRP) by 2 times within 1 week and compare the clinical effects of different sequences of debridement-antibiotic usage in patients with severe chronic periodontitis (CP). METHODS: A double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial was conducted in 30 severe CP patients (14 males and 16 females, 40.5 ± 8.4 years old on average from 35 to 60) receiving 3 different sequences of debridement-antibiotictherapy: Group A, antibiotic usage (metronidazole, MTZ, 0...

OBJECTIVE: The current study was aimed at the investigation of differences in response to photoinactivation between methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) isolates. Moreover, we aimed to elucidate if the observed variation resulted from antimicrobial resistance mechanisms and strains' susceptibility to antibiotic therapy. BACKGROUND DATA: Because of the emergence of multidrug resistance, the development of alternative antimicrobial strategies seems to be required...

Acetaminophen is a widely used analgesic drug. Its adverse reactions are rare but severe. An 89-year-old man developed an indurated edematous and erythematous plaque on his left arm 1 day after acetaminophen ingestion. Cellulitis was suspected and antibiotictherapy was started but there was no improvement of the rash; there was a spectacular extension of the lesion with occurrence of flaccid vesicles and blisters in the affected sites. The diagnosis of generalized-bullous-fixed drug eruption induced by acetaminophen was considered especially with a reported history of a previous milder reaction occurring in the same site...

The authors report two case studies of suppurative thyroiditis in type II diabetics patients, giving emphasis to the rapid evolution for sepsis, which took one of the patients to death. An earlier diagnosis, antibiotictherapy and a large surgical drainage are essential to avoid a fatal course in these patients. A brief review of suppurative thyroiditis is also presented.

This study is an evaluation of the infectious risk related to neonatal surgery in 300 patients between 1968 and 1978, and its consequences to mortality and morbidity. Bacteriological species, circumstances, chronology of infection, related to each type of surgical pathology prove the endogenous way of contamination to be usual and predominant. When intestinal obstruction occurs, the risk of hematogenous diffusion is directly dependent from local stasis and bacterial pullulation which can be evaulated with duodenal, jejunal or fecal samples...
