Antibiotic-impregnated external ventricular drains (AI-EVDs) have a debated efficacy in clinical studies.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Journal of antimicrobial chemotherapy
External ventricular drains (EVDs) are commonly used in the neurosurgical population. However, very few pediatric neurosurgery studies are available regarding EVD-associated infection rates with antib...
The perioperative management of patients with external ventricular drains (EVDs) is not well defined, and adherence to published management guidelines unknown. This study investigates practice, patter...
To evaluate the activity and effectiveness of impregnated-central venous catheters (CVC) against Klebsiella pneumoniae biofilms.
External ventricular drain (EVD) placement is frequently required in neurosurgical patients to divert CSF and monitor intracranial pressure. The usual practise is the tunnelled EVD technique performed...
Recently, various types of porous surfaces have been demonstrated for lubricant (e.g., oil) impregnated omniphobic surfaces. However, the retention of the lubricating liquid within the porous layer an...
External ventricular catheters are used for intracranial pressure monitoring and temporary cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage in neurosurgery. The incidence of ventriculostomy-related cere...
The purpose and/or hypothesis: To decrease the amount of external ventricular drain (EVD) related catheter infections by comparing the efficacy of Oklahoma University Medicine standard EV...
This is a prospective Infection Control study comparing rates of antibiotic usage and infections in the General Intensive Care Unit (GICU) in beds with copper impregnated linens versus reg...
In order to decrease inappropriate antibiotic use, drivers of inappropriate use must be identified locally. This study will focus on the MOST inappropriate use, which are defined as 'never...

A macrolide antibiotic from Streptomyces narbonensis. The drug has antimicrobial activity against a wide spectrum of pathogens.
A macrolide antibiotic produced by Streptomyces kitasatoensis. The drug has antimicrobial activity against a wide spectrum of pathogens.
A semisynthetic cephalosporin antibiotic with antimicrobial activity similar to that of CEPHALORIDINE or CEPHALOTHIN, but somewhat less potent. It is effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms.
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
Programs and guidelines for selecting optimal ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS regimens in an effort to maintain antibiotic efficacy, reduce CROSS INFECTION related to ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE while managing satisfactory clinical and economic outcomes.
