Background. Bone infections can involve the vertebral column, intervertebral disc space, spinal canal and soft tissues, can generate neurological deficit in addition to the destruction of ...
The problem of interest is that we are looking for new antibiotic treatments for bone and joint infections. Treatment for bone and joint infection is not standardized, which allows a wide ...
Staphylococcus aureus represents the leading pathogen implicated in bone and joint infection (BJI), usually requiring prolonged combination antimicrobial therapy, which may be particularly...
Due to the emergence of multidrug-resistant micro-organisms in patients with bone and joint infection (BJI), the prescription of off-labeled antibiotics seem to be more and more common as ...
Bone and joint infection (BJI) are bacterial infections that can occur after surgery (nosocomial infections) or de novo. They constitute a public health problem in Western Countries . Thes...
Treatment of bone infection is difficult due the systemic administration of antibiotics, which means that only low concentrations reach the inflamed bone tissue. Loss of bone stock is common in osteom...
Previous studies indicate that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infection and combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) can affect bone turnover. Furthermore, HIV-infected patients have lower bone m...
Postoperative deep infection after bone tumor surgery remains a serious complication. Although there are numerous reports about risk factors for postoperative deep infection in general surgery, there ...
Mineral and bone disorders (MBD) may be relevant in the etiology of infection.
Bone loss occurs in HIV infection, but paradoxically is intensified by HIV-antiretroviral therapy (ART) causing increased fracture incidence that is largely independent of antiretroviral regimen. Infl...
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Infection of the FRONTAL BONE often as a complication of FRONTAL SINUSITIS or trauma to the frontal bone and skull. It is characterized by subperiosteal abscess with OSTEOMYELITIS.
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
A type of osseous tissue which makes up the inner part of bone. It has a spongy, honeycomb-like structure with struts or trabecula and contains the BONE MARROW. It has higher rate of BONE REMODELING turnover than CORTICAL BONE.
Removal of mineral constituents or salts from bone or bone tissue. Demineralization is used as a method of studying bone strength and bone chemistry.
