Surgical Infections

by Donald E. Fry

The management of infection continues to be a major challenge for surgeons in all specialties. Until the discovery of penicillin and the development of sulfa compounds in the late 1920 and 1930s resulted in specific chemotherapy becoming the mainstay for the treatment of infection. But as the microbial resistance patterns developed for specific pathogens and this required the development of newer drugs, or the re-engineering of older ones. The management of the various infectious disease problems is all covered in this book. The community-acquired infections, abdominal infections, surgical site infections, osteomyelitis and nosocomial infections are all discussed with their management and prevention methods. Most of the infections require antimicrobial therapy or surgical management or combination of both, which are all covered in detail. This book has made an attempt to address all the prevention and management methods for various common infections.
