Oral Bacteria on Suture Materials - Clinical Comparison of an Antibacterial-coated and a Non-coated Suture Material
Antibacterial Triclosan-coated suture material (VICRYL PLUS®, Ethicon) and non-coated (VICRYL®) was compared for bacterial colonization after third molar extraction. Sutures were removed postoperatively and adhered bacteria were investigated.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Physicochemical property of fimbriated (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) and non-fimbriated bacteria of attaching to cells, tissue, and nonbiological surfaces. It is a factor in bacterial colonization and pathogenicity.
Virulence Factors, Bordetella
A set of BACTERIAL ADHESINS and TOXINS, BIOLOGICAL produced by BORDETELLA organisms that determine the pathogenesis of BORDETELLA INFECTIONS, such as WHOOPING COUGH. They include filamentous hemagglutinin; FIMBRIAE PROTEINS; pertactin; PERTUSSIS TOXIN; ADENYLATE CYCLASE TOXIN; dermonecrotic toxin; tracheal cytotoxin; Bordetella LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDES; and tracheal colonization factor.
Dental Pulp Necrosis
Death of pulp tissue with or without bacterial invasion. When the necrosis is due to ischemia with superimposed bacterial infection, it is referred to as pulp gangrene. When the necrosis is non-bacterial in origin, it is called pulp mummification.
Inflammation of the lung parenchyma that is caused by bacterial infections.
Dna Topoisomerases, Type I, Bacterial
Bacterial enzymes of the DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I class that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. These bacterial enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing negatively, but not positively, supercoiled DNA.
The aim of this study was to ascertain if the use of Vicryl plus® reduced the number of wound infections after transverse laparotomy comparing to polydioxanon suture. Between 10/03 and 1...
This is a 90-day study to evaluate cosmetic outcome and Surgical Site Infection in approximately 100 patients from 6 centers in China undergoing scheduled modified radical mastectomy for b...
To compare conventional polyglactin 910 sutures with triclosan-coated polyglactin 910 antimicrobial sutures for the reduction of surgical site infections and any associated health and econ...
Following closure of surgical incisions, wounds may develop redness, swelling, and drainage which may result in increased pain and infection. This study will test to hypothesis that using...
Background: Bacterial colonization of peripheral nerve catheters is frequent, although infection is relatively rare. With central venous catheters, the tunneling of catheter into the subcu...
PURPOSE: The applicability of absorbable materials as ligatures of pulmonary vessels has not been described. The present study compares tissue reactions around sites of pulmonary arteries ligated with...
PURPOSE: To establish whether the rates of surgical site infection (SSI) in gastrointestinal surgery are affected by the type of intra-abdominal suturing: sutureless, absorbable...
OBJECTIVES: Wound infections after abdominal surgery are still frequent types of nosocomial infections. Suture materials might serve as a vehicle for mechanical transport of bacteria into the surgical...
This paper demonstrates the effectiveness of a new antimicrobial suture coating. An amphiphilic polymer, poly[(aminoethyl methacrylate)-co-(butyl methacrylate)] (PAMBM), inspired by antimicrobial pept...
Purpose: The study aimed to compare surgical outcomes with likely toxic side effects when using pterygium excision and amniotic membrane grafting with fibrin glue versus Vicryl sutures. Method: This i...
