Comparing treatment efficacies
in patients with musculoskeletal infection|
Investigators are reviewing treatment protocols to determine whether certain regimens are more effective for specific infection types. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) infections are increasingly causing musculoskeletal infections in children. Prompt recognition and treatment of these infections is particularly important in children, because these infections can have long-term effects such as disability or deformity.
The Children's Hospital of Michigan's Orthopaedic surgeons are retrospectively evaluating treatment courses and outcomes of patients who have been treated for musculoskeletal infections. This study will help to determine which treatments are more effective, and allow the team to create future investigations to test new treatment regiments.
For more information, or to refer a patient, please call (313) 745-5227.
