FERNANDES, Ly de Freitas; PIMENTA, Fabiana Cristina  e  FERNANDES, Fernando de Freitas. Isolation and susceptibility profile of bacteria in diabetic foot and venous stasis ulcer of patients admitted to the emergency room of the main university hospital in the state of Goiás, Brazil. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.3, pp.211-217. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492007000300003.

BACKGROUND: Infected lower limb injuries (diabetic ulcers and venous stasis ulcers) cause great suffering and functional disability with social and economic impact and increase in risk of severe complications. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the microbiota and determine the antimicrobial susceptibility profile of isolated bacteria in lower limb injuries secondary to the venous stasis ulcer and diabetic foot. METHODS: Patients with lower limb lesions were included in the study, both diabetics and patients with venous stasis ulcer, receiving care at the emergency service of a university hospital in Goiânia (Brazil) from February 2005 to August 2006. Samples were collected with cotton swab to perform culture and antimicrobial sensitivity test applying standardized techniques. RESULTS: Presence of bacteria was detected in 88.46% of the samples. Gram-positive cocci were characterized as Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. Among Gram-negative rods, Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Escherichia coli,Proteus mirabilis and Enterobacter sp. were detected. CONCLUSIONS: Isolated microorganisms of lower limb injuries (diabetic foot and venous stasis ulcer) included Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus,Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli, which werethemost frequent and highly resistant to several kinds of antimicrobial agents.
