Clinical outcomes and costs among patients with Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia and orthopedic device infections.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
We evaluated costs and outcomes of patients with S. aureus bacteremia and orthopedic device infections (ODI). Patients with ODI had higher relapse of S. aureus infection, compared to bacteremic patients without ODI. Costs and outcomes were similar among ODI patients undergoing device removal and those treated with debridement and retention.
