An infectiological approach to gall bladder and biliary tract infections
MetadataShow full item record
Infections of the biliary tract are diseases that cause high morbidity and mortality in case of the lack of right and timely intervention. It is not suprising to see that some bacteria, which have multi-drug resistance, are causative agents for infections of biliary tract due to the overuse of broad- spectrum antibiotics in the community during the recent years. Properly determining the risk group, carrying out rapid diagnostic intervention in case of necessity, isolating the causative agent and appropriate antibiotic usage for these infections would be lifesaving. The aim of this article is to take a look at the diagnostic and therapeutic methods of infections of the biliary tract from the past till today and review the antibotic resistance among etiologic agents and difficulties in the management.
