Studiu in vitro privind adeziunea bacteriana la materialele de sutura utilizate in chirurgia oromaxilofaciala


Abstract:
Surgical sutures properly conducted will ensure maintaining the edges of the flaps until the wound healing process allows withstanding the functional stress. Among the possible complications of surgical sutures, we can find the wound suppuration, as a result of contamination with germs. In our in vitro study about the degree of bacterial adherence to different types of suture materials we chose four types of suture materials (three absorbable and one nonabsorbable) exposed to 4 bacterial species (Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). The monofilament absorbable polydioxanone wire had the lowest bacterial adherence, followed by the multifilament nonabsorbable wire of silk and the two types of multifilament absorbable polyglycolic acid wires. Regarding the bacterial species tested, Enterococcus faecalis had the highest adhesion level, no matter what type of material or time of exposure has been used.
