The results of microbiological study on the inflammation purulent focus in patients with chronic hematogenous osteomyelitis
Microbiological investigation of 24 patients with diagnosed long bone chronic hematogenous osteomyelitis in the exacerbation phase was carried out. 24 samples were taken, 30 strains of different bacteria were isolated. Quantitative microbiological investigations revealed high microbial dissemination of wounds in 75 % of patients. Microflora was isolated in monoculture in most cases - 79.2 %. Staphylococci domination (70.0 %) was a distinctive feature, and what is more, Staphylococcus aureus accounted for 63.3 %. Staphylococci were high sensitive to Rifampicin, Gentamicin, Oxacillin, Ciprofloxacin, and 71.4-90.9 % of the strains revealed were sensitive to these preparations. The density of Methicillin-resistant S. aureus and S. epidermidis among staphylococci has been established to be 19.0 and 9.5 %, respectively.
