Management of Septic Bursitis

Publication date: Available online 26 October 2018Source: Joint Bone SpineAuthor(s): Christian Lormeau, Grégoire Cormier, Johanna Sigaux, Cédric Arvieux, Luca SemeranoAbstractSuperficial septic bursitis is common, although accurate incidence data are lacking. The olecranon and prepatellar bursae are the sites most often affected. Whereas the clinical diagnosis of superficial bursitis is readily made, differentiating aseptic from septic bursitis usually requires examination of aspirated bursal fluid. Ultrasonography is useful both for assisting in the diagnosis and for guiding the aspiration. Staphylococcus aureus is responsible for 80% of cases of superficial septic bursitis. Deep septic bursitis is uncommon and often diagnosed late. The management of septic bursitis varies considerably across centers, notably regarding the use of surgery. Controlled trials are needed to establish standardized recommendations regarding antibiotic treatment protocols and the indications of surgery.

Abstract This work describes the engineering of a feasible, sensitive, and specific colorimetric assay for the detection of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) extracellular protease production, using a tailored agar-based readout platform. Firstly, S. aureus protease production was evaluated using different culture media. Maximum proteolytic activity was achieved after 24 h of incubation in brain heart infusion (BHI) broth at 37 °C, as confirmed using azo-casein and Sigma's non-specific protease activity assays. Secondly, to enhance proteolysis detection, novel agar-based platform readouts for S. aureus pro...

In this work, we report development of a generic, robust, electrospun nanofiber based interdigitated chemiresistive platform for DNA hybridization detection. The platform comprises of interdigitated metal electrodes decorated with ...

AbstractIntroductionSurgical site infections (SSIs) are among the most common and potentially serious complications after surgery.Staphylococcus aureus is a virulent pathogen frequently identified as a cause of SSI. As vaccines and other infection control measures are developed to reduce SSI risk, cost-utility analyses (CUA) of these interventions are needed to inform resource allocation decisions. A recent systematic review found that available SSI utilities are of “questionable quality.” Therefore, the purpose of this study was to estimate the disutility (i.e., utility decrease) associated with SSIs.MethodsIn...

In this study, encapsulation of garlic essential oil (GEO) in nanophytosomes as a novel phytoconstituents delivery system was performed via three different methods. The physicochemical characterization of nanophytosomes were studied by dynamic light scattering (DLS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and also antioxidant activity, physical stability and antibacterial effects against food-borne pathogens i.e. Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus were investigated. Optimized GEO nanophytosomes showed promising results with the size of 115 nm, loading capacity of 40...

​A bursa, a fluid-filled synovial sack, serves in the body as either a pulley or a cushion, and bursitis, of course, is an inflammatory response that can occur to a bursa. The causes of the inflammatory response can be trauma (direct or overuse), infection, or rheumatologic or crystal-induced disease.​Whether a bursa is deep or superficial ultimately determines the most likely pathophysiology and dictates the most appropriate treatment. Superficial bursae are those closest to the skin, and they are most vulnerable to direct trauma and infection—the prepatellar, infrapatellar, and olecranon bursae. Deep bursae inc...
