Time to antibiotics, coverage can predict infection of open-tibia fractures

from Healio

Infection of type III open-tibia fractures was predicted by time from injury to antibiotics and to wound coverage, according to study results. Researchers retrospectively reviewed all Gustilo-Anderson type III open-tibia fractures treated at a level-one trauma center. After exclusions for missing data, nonreconstructible limbs or absence of 90-day outcome data, the researchers included 137 patients in their analysis. The study's main outcome measure was deep infection within 90 days. more
