Infections in vascular surgery.

S35 - S41.
Infections in vascular surgery are usually of multifactorial nature resulting from a complex interplay of patient, surgical and environmental factors. Preventative measures initiated from the stage of pre-operative screening, maintenance of patient homeostasis and the use of organism-directed antibiotics can contribute to reduce infection rates. Graft preservation techniques are becoming increasingly popular as a method to treat established graft infections. In this article we report on the current trends and techniques on the management of infections in vascular surgery. Ongoing studies are required to continue to accumulate data on the effectiveness of these techniques.
