Étude de l’infectivité des Candida sur cathéters vasculaires périphériques prélevés du Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Tlemcen

Les levures peuvent adhérer aux implants médicaux et causer des infections responsables d’une morbi-mortalité élevée parmi les patients hospitalisés. L’objectif de la présente étude est d’étudier l’infectivité sur cathéters vasculaires périphériques prélevés des services de chirurgie générale et de cardiologie du centre hospitalier universitaire de Tlemcen. Les résultats obtenus ont montré qu’à partir de 29 prélèvements altérés par les levures, 35 souches de Candida sp. ont été isolées. Cependant, Candida albicans est l’espèce la plus isolée dans un contexte infectieux. Les facteurs de risque qui ont accompagné les cas d’infections sont la durée d’implantation, le sexe masculin et la présence bactérienne. Yeasts can adhere to medical implants and cause infections responsible for high morbidity and mortality among hospitalized patients. The objective of this study is to investigate the infectivity on peripheral vascular catheters collected from general surgery and cardiology in University Hospital of Tlemcen. The results showed that from 29 samples altered by yeast, 35 Candida sp. strains were isolated. However, Candida albicans is the most isolated species in an infectious context. Risk factors that accompanied the infections are the duration of implantation, male gender, and bacterial presence.
