    Charles E Edmiston
    Division of Vascular Surgery, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA
    J Antimicrob Chemother 56:872-8. 2005
    ..The aim of the study was to analyse the susceptibility of unique and non-duplicate aerobic and anaerobic isolates from surgical patients to a novel des-F(6)-quinolone (garenoxacin) and other selected antimicrobial agents...

    Surgery 138:573-9; discussion 579-82. 2005
    ..Breaks in surgical technique, host contamination, or hematogenous seeding are suggested as causal factors in these infections. This study implicates contamination of the operating room air as an additional etiology of infection...
