Abstract

Surgical Site Infections (SSIs) are the most common nosocomial infections. Surgical sutures are optimal surfaces for bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. The most commonly isolated microorganisms in SSIs are Staphyloccocus aureus (Sa), coagulase-negative Staphylococcus spp., Enterococcus spp., Escherichia coli (Ec) and other Gram-negative bacilli. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibiofilm activity of a Medical Device (MD) containing TIAB, which is titanium dioxide linked with monovalent silver ions.
