Sphingomonas paucimobilis is an emerging opportunistic bacterium with a particular tropism towards bones and soft tissues. It is a gram-negative rod that can infect immunosuppressed or immunocompetent individuals in the community or hospital settings. Prognosis of infected patients is generally good, but morbidity and mortality cases have both been documented.

The objective of this study was to describe the frequency of invasive bacterial infections (IBIs) in young infants with skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) and the impact of IBI evaluation on disp...
Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) provides an indirect score of trabecular microarchitecture from lumbar spine (LS) dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Increasing soft tissue thickness artifactually reduces T...
Skin and soft tissue infections are a common complaint seen in the emergency setting, with diagnosis traditionally made by history and physical examination alone. Cellulitis and cutaneous abscesses ar...
Skin and soft tissue infections include the skin as well as fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, synovial membranes, fat, blood vessels, nerves, and fibrous tissues. They range from superficial infect...
The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) across healthcare settings and analyze direct healthcare expenditures related to SSTIs in 2000 and 2012 in...
This study is to determine whether antibiotic therapy is needed for patients with non-life threatening soft tissue infections. Most patients with these soft tissue infections are presently...
Translational studies in cancer research can be impeded by the lack of high-quality clinical data that can be correlated with research questions. This is particularly true in the case of r...
Crestal bone and soft tissue stability around implants is an important issue in implant dentistry. Initial vertical mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be one of the factors having impac...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether AB103 is safe and effective in the treatment of patients with necrotizing soft tissue infections receiving standard of care therapy.
This study evaluates the impact of soft tissue grafts on soft tissue recession following immediate implant, provisional and bone graft placement in compromised sockets. One third of the pa...
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
A second-generation cephalosporin administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Its bactericidal action results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. It is used for urinary tract infections, lower respiratory tract infections, and soft tissue and bone infections.
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
