We reviewed the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, and outcomes of 3 cases of chest tube–related empyema due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Antiseptic-impregnated chest tubes were inserted in cultures containing MRSA isolates from these 3 patients, and zone of inhibition were measured. Chest tube–related MRSA empyema might complicate tube thoracostomy, and coating the chest tube with antiseptic agents could prevent this complication.
In this retrospective evaluation of the 4-year clinical use of minocycline and rifampin-impregnated catheters in bone marrow transplantation (BMT) patients, we report low risk of development of staphylococcal resistance to the antibiotics coating the catheters and efficacy in preventing primary staphylococcal bloodstream infections.
