Abstract

Orthopedic implant-associated infections are a devastating complication with significant impact on patients and on healthcare systems. The aims of this work were to describe the patterns of antibiotic resistance, pathogenicity and virulence of clinical bacterial strains isolated from orthopedic implant-associated infections and to further isolate and characterize bacteriophages that are efficient in controlling these isolated bacteria. Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis and Escherichia coli, isolated from orthopedic infections, had shown multi-resistant patterns to the most frequentl ...
