Vascular infections typically include those of surgical sites, prosthetic grafts, and vascular ulcers, including some diabetic foot ulcers. Twenty patients not receiving antibiotics for the past three months were selected, with swabs taken from each individual for culture and 16S AS. presence of MRSA in the absence of clinical features of infection such as redness or pus discharge) or infection in chronic ulcers varies between 7% and 30%. Currently, culture and sensitivity results typically take several days before they are reported to clinicians, during which time the patient is often treated with broad spectrum antibiotic(s) so as to cover all potential pathogens. Using that data, the researchers identified 3 risk factors for MRSA infection: the presence of multidrug-resistant organisms, history of a MRSA diabetic foot infection, and MRSA nasal colonization. The investigator will prescribe an empiric systemic antibiotic therapy based on protocol instructions. Diabetic foot ulcers are also commonly associated with peripheral arterial disease, peripheral neuropathy, or both .
Furthermore, it was also observed that Ofloxacillin/Cefotaxime combination could be almost equally useful. CONCLUSIONS: The presence of limb ischemia, osteomyelitis, local and diffuse gangrene and ulcer depth were independent predictors of amputation.
