β-lactam Use in Single-stage Exchange of ProstheTic Infections (Knee / Hip) in a Center of Reference (β-SEPTIC)

According to the official recommendations, infected prosthesis can be surgically treated by one or two-stage replacement. In Strasbourg, the investigators only perform one-stage surgery, which means that the new materiel is put directly into an infected site. To prevent re-infection, probabilist antibiotherapy has to be started the earlier as possible and to have the larger specter as possible. Official recommendations don't specify the best choice of antibiotherapy and let prescriptors make choice, according to the local epidemiology and patient's history.

In Strasbourg, the investigators systematically start an antibiotic against cocci gram positive: daptomycin. Sometimes, the investigators add tazocillin, a broad-spectrum β-lactam against bacillus gram negative. To determine if the investigators use the second one, they focalized on the presence of fistula or not. Indeed, enterobacteriae from gastro-intestinal tractus are also found on the skin and can move to the peri-prosthetic site if a fistula is created. The major disadvantage of this board-spectrum antibiotic is the selection and creation of resistant bacteriae, which can be responsible of failure, re-infection, or just spreading on the environnement.

The primary purpose is to evaluate retrospectively the prescription of tazocillin, judging it's necessity thanks to antibiograms performed on samples taken during surgery. The aim is to evaluate if the criteria " fistula or not " is a good one to guide the prescription of board-spectrum β-lactam.

Secondary purposes are to find the etiology of failures ( bacteriological failure or re-infection with a new pathogen), evaluate the apparition of multi-drug resistant bacteriae and infections they are responsible for, looking for others criterias which could help the investigators to choose the probablist antibiotherapy

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acute infectious disease caused by COXIELLA BURNETII. It is characterized by a sudden onset of FEVER; HEADACHE; malaise; and weakness. In humans, it is commonly contracted by inhalation of infected dusts derived from infected domestic animals (ANIMALS, DOMESTIC).

A complex of cyclic peptide antibiotics produced by the Tracy-I strain of Bacillus subtilis. The commercial preparation is a mixture of at least nine bacitracins with bacitracin A as the major constituent. It is used topically to treat open infections such as infected eczema and infected dermal ulcers. (From Goodman and Gilman, The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1140)

Filarial infection of the eyes transmitted from person to person by bites of Onchocerca volvulus-infected black flies. The microfilariae of Onchocerca are thus deposited beneath the skin. They migrate through various tissues including the eye. Those persons infected have impaired vision and up to 20% are blind. The incidence of eye lesions has been reported to be as high as 30% in Central America and parts of Africa.

Acquired defect of cellular immunity that occurs naturally in macaques infected with SRV serotypes, experimentally in monkeys inoculated with SRV or MASON-PFIZER MONKEY VIRUS; (MPMV), or in monkeys infected with SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS.

Renal syndrome in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients characterized by nephrotic syndrome, severe proteinuria, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis with distinctive tubular and interstitial changes, enlarged kidneys, and peculiar tubuloreticular structures. The syndrome is distinct from heroin-associated nephropathy as well as other forms of kidney disease seen in HIV-infected patients.
