development of a bacteriophage-typing set for staphylococcus epidermidis.six phages isolated from lysogenic cultures of staphylococcus epidermidis were used to type cultures in our collection classified previously as "untypable" with our original typing set of 13 phages, new clinical isolates from missouri, and clinical isolates from connecticut, georgia, pennsylvania, and virginia. typability with the new set of 6 phages and with our 13 original phages was compared. for 203 cultures, 81 (39.9%) cultures were typable with the set of 6 phages and 73 (36.0%) cultures w ...1977142095
an analysis of ten-year trends in infections in adults on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (capd).infectious complications are the achilles heel of capd. to determine trends in these events, we analyzed the capd related infections of 303 adults on capd at a single university center between 1979 and 1989. during this decade the percentage of insulin-dependent diabetics increased from 14% to 39% (p less than 0.005). peritonitis rates fell from 2.4 episodes/y in 1979 to 0.8 episodes/y in 1989. the proportion of patients with multiple episodes of peritonitis decreased (40% of the patients in 197 ...19911889148
periprosthetic joint infection: the incidence, timing, and predisposing factors.periprosthetic joint infection is one of the most challenging complications of joint arthroplasty. we identified current risk factors of periprosthetic joint infection after modern joint arthroplasty, and determined the incidence and timing of periprosthetic joint infection. we reviewed prospectively collected data from our database on 9245 patients undergoing primary hip or knee arthroplasty between january 2001 and april 2006. periprosthetic joint infections developed in 63 patients (0.7%). si ...200818421542
