Mechanical stability and post-traumatic osteitis: an experimental evaluation of the relation between infection of bone and internal fixation

Injury
B Friedrich, P Klaue

Abstract

Stable and unstable internal fixation of fractures was performed in rabbits. After inoculation with Staphylococcus aureus, clinically manifest osteitis occurred only in the very unstable fractures. Abscesses, sinuses and sequestra developed in 45 per cent of the unstable fractures, whereas clinically manifest osteitis did not occur after rigid fixation. With rigid fixation there was no significant difference in the time to bony union between the infected and uninfected fractures. It seems that the development of osteitis and the healing of a fracture are both related to the degree of rigidity, but remain independent of each other. The significance of these findings in the management of posttraumatic osteitis is discussed.

CRISPR & Staphylococcus

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Staphylococci are associated with life-threatening infections in hospitals, as well as the community. Here is the latest research on how CRISPR-Cas system can be used for treatment of Staphylococcal infections.
