subphrenic abscess. the new epidemiology.recent changes in the etiology, topography, and bacteriology of subphrenic abscess are identified in 93 patients treated between 1955 and 1975. gastric and biliary tract operation account for 52% of abscesses. appendicitis is now responsible for only 8% of subphrenic infections, in contrast with the 40% of previous reports. colonic surgery (19%) and trauma (8%) are increasing in importance. left-sided abscesses occur in 40%, and multiple space abscesses in 20% of patients. the bacterial flora co ...1977880040

klippel-trénaunay syndrome: the importance of "geographic stains" in identifying lymphatic disease and risk of complications.klippel-trénaunay syndrome (kts) is a rare congenital anomaly classically defined as the triad of vascular stain, soft tissue and/or bony hypertrophy, and venous varicosities.200415337982
interrelations of organism prevalence, specimen collection method, and host age, sex, and breed among 8,354 canine urinary tract infections (1969-1995).selected information was compiled from canine urinalyses and urine cultures conducted between january 1969 and december 1995. eight thousand three hundred fifty-four microbial isolates (bacteria and fungi) included 4,873 isolates from females and 3,481 from males. ten bacterial genera accounted for 96.3% of the urinary isolates, including escherichia coli (44.1%), staphylococcus spp. (11.6%), proteus spp. (9.3%), klebsiella spp. (9.1%), enterococcus spp. (8.0%), and streptococcus spp. (5.4%) as ...200111467591
low-level colonization and infection with ciprofloxacin-resistant gram-negative bacilli in a skilled nursing facility.we report a 1-year surveillance study that evaluates colonization and infection with ciprofloxacin-resistant gram-negative bacilli (cr gnb) and the relation to quinolone use and other possible risk factors in a proprietary skilled nursing facility (snf) with no history of outbreaks.19989836837
antimicrobial susceptibility of bacteria isolated from pinnipeds stranded in central and northern california.over a 2-yr period (1994-1995), the antimicrobial susceptibilities of 129 bacterial isolates recovered from live stranded california sea lions (zalophus californianus), harbor seals (phoca vitulina), and northern elephant seals (mirounga angustirostris) were studied. nineteen genera of bacteria were isolated from various sites of inflammation; abscesses and umbilici were the most common sites. seventy-two percent of the bacterial isolated were gram negative, and the enterobacteriaceae (escherich ...19989809600
bacterial isolates from california sea lions (zalophus californianus), harbor seals (phoca vitulina), and northern elephant seals (mirounga angustirostris) admitted to a rehabilitation center along the central california coast, 1994-1995.in 2 yr of bacteriologic culturing of 297 california sea lions (zalophus californianus), 154 harbor seals (phoca vitulina), and 89 northern elephant seals (mirounga angustirostris) stranded alive along the california coast, the most frequent isolates from inflammatory lesions in live animals were escherichia coli, streptococcus viridans, listeria ivanovii, beta-hemolytic streptococcus spp., and enterococcus spp. this is the first report of l. ivanovii isolation from a marine mammal. the common i ...19989732032
an outbreak of providencia stuartii urinary tract infections. patients with condom catheters are a reservoir of the bacteria.we investigated an outbreak of multiple antibiotic-resistant providencia stuartii urinary tract infections that occurred on a neurology ward. only patients who had been catheterized became infected. however, approximately 10% of patients with condom catheter urinary drainage systems were colonized, ie, p stuartii was present on their skin and in the urine drainage bags but not in fresh-voided urine. patient urinals were also contaminated. the outbreak was terminated by segregating infected and c ...19817206165

nosocomial infection and antibiotic utilization in geriatric patients: a pilot prospective surveillance program in skilled nursing facilities.prospective surveillance of nosocomial infection was conducted at seven skilled proprietary nursing facilities in orange county, calif., usa. the average incidence of facility-acquired infection was 5.2 infections/1,000 patient days. the most common source of infection was urinary tract (47%), followed by respiratory tract (26%) and skin (14%). the four most common pathogens isolated were proteus spp. (20%), escherichia coli (17%), staphylococcus aureus (13%) and pseudomonas spp. (11%). trimetho ...19921427120
