Tracing local and regional clusters of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae ST512 with whole genome sequencing, Finland, 2013 to 2018.

Janko van Beek, Kati Räisänen, Markku Broas, Jari Kauranen, Arja Kähkölä, Janne Laine, Eeva Mustonen, Tuija Nurkkala, Teija Puhto, Jaana Sinkkonen, Senja Torvinen, Tarja Vornanen, Risto Vuento, Jari Jalava, Outi Lyytikäinen,

BackgroundTwo epidemiologically-unrelated clusters of Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-producing K. pneumoniae were detected among several healthcare facilities (HCF) in Finland by routine surveillance using whole genome sequencing (WGS).AimThe objective was to investigate transmission chains to stop further spread of the responsible strain.MethodsIn this observational retrospective study, cases were defined as patients ...

Infection triples the cost of a primary joint arthroplasty.

Teija Puhto, Ari-Pekka Puhto, Markku Vielma, Hannu Syrjälä,

<h4>Background</h4>In Europe few studies have analyzed the costs of treating aseptic revisions and prosthetic joint infections with either debridement, antibiotics and implant retention or two-stage revision, as compared to the cost of a primary total joint arthroplasty.<h4>Methods</h4>The purpose was to analyze the costs of total joint arthroplasties, aseptic revisions and ...

Predictors of treatment outcome in prosthetic joint infections treated with prosthesis retention.

Ari-Pekka Puhto, Teija Puhto, Tuukka Niinimäki, Pasi Ohtonen, Juhana Leppilahti, Hannu Syrjälä,

<h4>Purpose</h4>The reported success rates of debridement, antibiotics, and implant retention (DAIR) for prosthetic joint infections (PJIs) vary widely. Several risk factors have been described for treatment failure, but they vary between studies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictors of DAIR failure in PJI treatment and to ...

Two-stage revision for prosthetic joint infection: outcome and role of reimplantation microbiology in 107 cases.

Ari-Pekka Puhto, Teija M Puhto, Tuukka T Niinimäki, Juhana I Leppilahti, Hannu P T Syrjälä,

Two-stage revision is widely used for the treatment of prosthetic joint infections. However, the duration of antibiotic treatment between stages and role of reimplantation microbiology are controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome and influence of the reimplantation microbiology of two-staged revisions with 6 weeks of ... Read more >>
