A Comparison of Three Different Bioinformatics Analyses of the 16S –23S rRNA Encoding Region for Bacterial Identification
Conclusion The higher resolution at the species level identification provided by 16S–23S rRNA encoding region NGS makes its use in routine diagnostic microbiology potentially attractive. Particularly, data analysis is one of the most important steps of a diagnostic workflow, which requires an optimal pipeline for the interpretation of the sequencing data in a short time. This study demonstrates that de novo assembly and subsequent BLASTN analysis using an in-house developed database compared to OTU clustering and mapping approaches is the most accurate and fastest approach for identification of bacterial pathogens....

Isolation of Antimicrobial Compounds From Cnestis ferruginea Vahl ex. DC (Connaraceae) Leaves Through Bioassay-Guided Fractionation
Conclusion In conclusion, aqueous extracts of C. ferruginea leaves showed antimicrobial activity due to the presence of hydroquinone and caffeic acid methyl ester. This supports its traditional use for infections and confirmed that the active molecules are water-soluble. Author Contributions KK, SP, LVP, and WL conceived and designed the experiments. SP, KK, M-RY, and J-GL performed the experiments. SP, LVP, WL, M-RY, J-GL, and Z-HJ analyzed the data. WL and Z-HJ contributed reagents, materials, and analysis tools. KK, SP, WL, M-RY, Z-HJ, and LVP contributed to the writing of the manuscript. All authors contributed to m...

Repair of Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Mycotic Aneurysms and Infected Aortic Grafts Using Allograft
ConclusionsRadical resection and in situ reconstruction with CPA avoids placing prosthetic material in an infected field and provides good early and midterm outcomes. However, early postoperative imaging is necessary given the risk of pseudoaneurysm formation.

Repair of Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Mycotic Aneurysms and Infected Aortic Grafts Using Allograft.
CONCLUSIONS: Radical resection and in-situ reconstruction with CPA avoids placing prosthetic material in an infected field and provides good early and mid-term outcomes. However, early postoperative imaging is necessary given the risk of pseudoaneurysm formation. PMID: 29777669 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Clinical - microbiological characterization and risk factors of mortality in infective endocarditis from a tertiary care academic hospital in Southern India.
CONCLUSIONS: This study reiterates the persistent dominance of rheumatic heart disease in the population studied and α - hemolytic Streptococci as the commonest responsible microorganism. PMID: 29716704 [PubMed - in process]

Infective Endocarditis at a Hospital in Saudi Arabia: Epidemiology, Bacterial Pathogens and Outcome
CONCLUSION: Native valve endocarditis is the predominant type of endocarditis. The patients were older adults and the most common organisms wereSaureus, E faecalis and viridans streptococci. Ann Saudi Med 2009; 29(6): 433-436

Ischemic stroke and ST-elevation myocardial infarction revealing infective endocarditis.
Authors: Joliat GR, Halkic N, Pantet O, Ben-Hamouda N Abstract In this clinical scenario, we report the case of a patient who presented multiple embolic complications due to mitral infective endocarditis (IE). A 68-year-old woman had extended right hepatectomy for hilar cholangiocarcinoma. Unfortunately, she had multiple postoperative complications and had to be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit. During this stay, we have diagnosed an Enterococcus faecium IE after the occurrence of multiple embolic complications (myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, digital emboli, splenic emboli, and renal emboli). The cas...
