Abstract

The authors report on seven cases of infected iatrogenic lesions of the femoral trifurcation. One case was a false aneurism consecutive to a femoral vein catheterization. In 5 cases an arterial lesion followed angiography according to Seldinger. In the last case aetiology was undetermined. Local symptomatology was always associated to systemic infection. The causative germ was a pseudomonas in 3 cases an a staphylococ in 4 others. Operation was performed in emergency in all cases because of a fissure or a rupture of the artery. The authors performed: one simple arterial suture, one resection with plastic graft, one resection with venous graft and 4 resections with double vein graft. This last procedure appears useful for lesions situated at the femoral division.

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.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
