Extract

Antimicrobial resistance among pathogens, such as Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase-negative staphylococci, enterococci, and aerobic gram-negative bacilli, is pervasive in the community and hospital setting. Every practicing orthopaedist faces on a daily basis the increasing problem of antimicrobial resistance in the effort to prevent or treat nosocomial infections. Recognizing the scope of the problem; understanding the mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance as well as the epidemiology, prevention, and treatment of infections due to resistant organisms; and knowing the proposed solutions to these problems will optimize the orthopaedic surgeon’s ability to manage multidrug-resistant nosocomial pathogens.
