BliziotisVincent H. Improving the role of intraventricular antimicrobial agents in the management of meningitis.

If continued use of the device is required, such as the need for intracranial pressure measurement, another device should be placed at a new location. Additionally, we would recommend that antimicrobial therapy be combined with removal of all neurosurgical hardware to maximise the chances of cure of inttaventricular infection.

Current recommendations from the Infectious Diseases Society of America IDSA regarding empirical antimicrobial therapy for postneurosurgical meningitis, are for intravenous vancomycin plus either cefepime, ceftazidime, or meropenem.

Serum, tissue and body fluid concentrations of tigecycline after a single mg dose.

Infections of cerebrospinal fluid shunts. Use of a program-specific website to disseminate surveillance data obtained from the meropenem yearly susceptibility test information collection MYSTIC study. The pharmacokinetics of tigecycline do not support this antibiotic as a treatment for meningitis due to A baumannii.


A review of its antibacterial activity, pharmacokinetic properties, and therapeutic use. Clinical and laboratory standards institute.

Studies that did not present data regarding the clinical course and therapy of acinetobacter meningitis were not included in this review. Ghoneim AT, Halaka A. Conclusions Unfortunately, acinetobacter meningitis is becoming an increasingly common clinical entity.

Removal of internal shunt, lumbar drain, and EVD. Risk factors associated with postcraniotomy meningitis. Cure of multiresistant Acinetobacter baumannii central nervous system infections with intraventricular or intrathecal colistin: Case report Indian J Med Sci. Penetration of tigecycline into the CSF of patients with uninflamed meninges is minimal, with mean CSF concentrations of about ddose.

Treatment of ventriculitis with gentamicin and cloxacillin in infants born with spina bifida. More likely than not, the organism is multidrug resistant when it is encountered in intensive care units or neurosurgical wards.

Ciprofloxacin in the treatment of gram-negative bacillary meningitis.

Carbapenems Both imipenem and meropenem have been used in the treatment of acinetobacter meningitis. Comparative dose-effect relations at several dosing intervals for beta-lactam, aminoglycoside and quinolone antibiotics against gram-negative bacilli in murine thigh-infection and pneumonitis models.

Acinetobacter spp are frequently resistant to cefepime or ceftazidime.

Amikacin seems to have greater in-vitro activity against acinetobacter than gentamicin. Clinical significance of Acinetobacter species isolated from cerebrospinal fluid. Acute bacterial meningitis in adults.


Pharmacodynamics of intravenous ciprofloxacin in seriously ill patients. Appearance of resistance to meropenem during the treatment of a patient with meningitis by acinetobacter. The caveat to this statement is that while a small number of studies have assessed CSF amikacin concentrations in adults,these do not give enough information to determine true peak concentrations, and therefore the likelihood of meeting pharmacodynamic targets. Penetration of sulbactam into cerebrospinal fluid of patients with viral meningitis or without meningitis.

Thus, adequate CSF concentrations may not be attained filety;e these antibiotics are administered intravenously. Cerebrospinal fluid ceftazidime kinetics in patients with external ventriculostomies.

Neurosurg Clin N Am. The publisher’s final edited version of this article is available at Lancet Infect Dis.

Hanninen P, Rossi T. It is vital that any agent given intraventricularly be made up in a preservative-free medium to prevent toxicity. Two reports of carbapenem use for Pseudomonas aeruginosa have described low rates of development of carbapenem resistance during therapy with extended infusions of the antibiotic.
