Postoperative infections after transplantation

Transplantation of organs has become a successful modality for treatment of organ diseases. Improved techniques for organ preservation, surgical procedures, rejection management, and posttransplant infection prophylaxis and treatment have contributed to this success. Most identifiable of the advances in solid organ transplantation (SOT) is the development of potent immunosuppressive agents. However, the use of these agents in the prevention and management of rejection is closely interrelated to the development of

Hospital infections

To fight against hospital infections and the more and more resistant bacteria’s it has been developed Toul Mobile Laminar Airflow. Laminar airflow systems has been used for many years in the operating rooms and have shown a significant reduction of surgical site infection. Unfortunately it was not possible to use this technology in most existing operating rooms due to huge installation and renovation costs. Toul has therefore developed a new mobile

The first sterile instrument table for the operating room

The danger from hospital infections is worsening because, increasingly, they cannot be cured with commonly used antibiotics. In 1974, only 2% of Staphylococcus aureus infections in the USA were MRSA (methicillin-resistant). By 2003, that figure had soared to 57%, and now is over 60%. To fight against hospital infections and the more and more resistant bacteria’s it has been developed Toul Mobile Laminar Airflow. Laminar airflow systems has been used

Prevention of postoperative pacemaker infection and prosthetic valve infection w …

Pacemaker implantation, implantable defibrillators and all other surgical procedures, involves the risk of infection. Infection remains the most common pacemaker-related complication after equipment failure and sensing and pacing defects. It is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality despite improved surgical techniques and the development of new pacemaker devices. If a pacemaker patient gets an infection the bacteria can persist even when the rest of the body is free of
