5102. Treatment of hospitalized patients with complicated skin and skin structure infections: double-blind, randomized, multicenter study of piperacillin-tazobactam versus ticarcillin-clavulanate. The Piperacillin/Tazobactam Skin and Skin Structure Study Group. (PubMed)

Treatment of hospitalized patients with complicated skin and skin structure infections: double-blind, randomized, multicenter study of piperacillin-tazobactam versus ticarcillin-clavulanate. The Piperacillin/Tazobactam Skin and Skin Structure Study Group. We compared the efficacy and safety of two beta-lactam-beta-lactamase inhibitor combinations, namely, piperacillin-tazobactam and ticarcillin-clavulanate, in the treatment of complicated bacterial infections of skin that required (...) hospitalization. The study was a randomized, double-blind, comparative trial involving 20 centers. The infections were classified as (i) cellulitis with drainage, (ii) cutaneous abscess, (iii) diabetic or ischemic foot infection, and (iv) infected wounds and ulcers with drainage. The clinical response rates were comparable for the two treatment regimens (61% of the patients were cured with piperacillin-tazobactam and ticarcillin-clavulanate and improvement was seen in 15 and 16% of patients treated

5104. Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of cephalexin for treatment of uncomplicated skin abscesses in a population at risk for community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection. (PubMed)

Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of cephalexin for treatment of uncomplicated skin abscesses in a population at risk for community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection. Empirical use of beta-lactam antibiotics, the preferred agents for treating uncomplicated skin and soft tissue infections, may no longer be appropriate for these infections because of the increasing prevalence of community strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA (...) ). Retrospective studies, however, suggest that outcomes are good even when beta-lactams are used. We conducted a randomized, double-blind trial of 166 outpatient subjects comparing placebo to cephalexin at 500 mg orally four times for 7 days after incision and drainage of skin and soft tissue abscesses. The primary outcome was clinical cure or failure 7 days after incision and drainage. S. aureus was isolated from 70.4% of abscess cultures. Of the isolates tested 87.8% were MRSA, 93% of which were positive

5105. Clinical and in vitro efficacy of amoxicillin against bacteria associated with feline skin wounds and abscesses. (PubMed)

Clinical and in vitro efficacy of amoxicillin against bacteria associated with feline skin wounds and abscesses. A clinical trial involving 122 cats with infected skin wounds or abscesses presented to 10 veterinary clinics was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of 2 oral amoxicillin drug products (a paste and a suspension). A 2nd objective of the study was to identify bacteria involved in such infections and verify their in vitro sensitivity to amoxicillin. Samples of wound exudate were

5106. Management and outcome of children with skin and soft tissue abscesses caused by community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. (PubMed)

Management and outcome of children with skin and soft tissue abscesses caused by community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Although the epidemiology of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) has been explored in many investigations, management of this emerging infection has not been well-studied. For non-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue abscesses, incision and drainage is generally adequate therapy without (...) the use of antibiotics, but this has not been established for CA-MRSA.Children presenting to Children's Medical Center of Dallas for management of skin and soft tissue abscesses caused by culture-proved CA-MRSA were prospectively followed. We analyzed data from the initial evaluation and from two follow-up visits that focused on the management and outcome of CA-MRSA infection. Retrospective chart review was performed 2 to 6 months after the initial visit.Sixty-nine children were identified

5107. Avoiding stitch abscesses in subcuticular skin closures: the L-stitch (PubMed)

Avoiding stitch abscesses in subcuticular skin closures: the L-stitch A potential problem with the standard method of skin closure in pediatric surgery is the development of a skin abscess. To avoid this problem, we introduce a new stitch--the L-stitch. The technique involves passing the suture subcuticularly at the end of the incision and redirecting the needle at a 90 degree angle from the previous suture, before bringing it out to the skin surface. This stitch can be used in place (...) of the initial and finishing knot of a running suture. It takes less time to perform than a square or a surgeon's knot and is less bulky. This technique is straightforward and, when used in conjunction with adhesive skin closure strips, provides strong, reliable skin closure, yielding excellent cosmetic results.

5108. Clinical and molecular characteristics of staphylococcal skin abscesses in children. (PubMed)

Clinical and molecular characteristics of staphylococcal skin abscesses in children. Forty-nine children with skin abscesses (36 methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and 13 methicillin-susceptible S. aureus) exhibited similar disease severity. Both pathogen groups were pulse field type USA300, multilocus sequence type 8, and possessed Panton-Valentine leukocidin genes. Related microbial genetic architecture may account for similarities in disease severity despite differences
