Abstract
Infections are one of the most prevalent complications associated with orthopedic implant surgeries. The rise of multidrug resistant bacteria intensifies the risk of serious complications resulting from infection, as these bacteria cannot be fought with traditional noninvasive treatments. A. baumannii is a nosocomial, multidrug-resistant bacteria originating in military field hospitals and has since spread to civilian hospitals, where it threatens immunocompromised patients. The objective of this study is to assess the adherence and proliferation of multidrug-resistant A. baumanii with varying concentrations of antimicrobial, silver-doped titanium dioxide-PDMS.
