Current recommendations from the Infectious Diseases Society of America IDSA regarding intravenrticular antimicrobial therapy for postneurosurgical meningitis, are for intravenous vancomycin plus either cefepime, ceftazidime, or meropenem. Meningitis Intraventricular Neurological ventriculitis Amikacin Colistin. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol. Neurotoxicity induced by cefepime in a very old hemodialysis patient.

Duplicate patient descriptions 3438 or cases of recurrent infection 44 are omitted from our analysis. Meningitis with Acinetobacter calcoaceticus in cerebrospinal fluid. Antibiotic-resistant acinetobacter meningitis in neurosurgical patients. There is accumulating experience with intraventricular or intrathecal use intrraventricular polymyxins. Clinical and bacteriological features of relapsing shunt-associated meningitis due to Acinetobacter baumannii. Rifampicin may be useful in the therapy of multidrug-resistant A baumannii infections in amikackn with other drugs such as polymyxins,sulbactam, and carbapenems.

Comparison of gatifloxacin and levofloxacin administered at various dosing regimens to hospitalised patients with community-acquired pneumonia: Post-neurosurgical meningitis due to inraventricular Acinetobacter baumanii treated with intrathecal colistin: Aminoglycoside therapy of gram-negative bacillary meningitis. Given the pharmacodynamic issues mentioned above, we would recommend a dosing regimen of mg ciprofloxacin, or higher, every 8 h if the drug was to be used for acinetobacter meningitis.


A report of 3 cases. Pharmacodynamic analysis of ceftriaxone, gatifloxacin, and levofloxacin against Streptococcus pneumoniae with the use intraventeicular Monte Carlo simulation.

Scand J Infect Dis. Global assessment of the antimicrobial activity of polymyxin B against 54 clinical isolates of Gram-negative bacilli: Rifampicin Rifampicin may be useful in the therapy of multidrug-resistant A baumannii infections in combination with other drugs such as polymyxins,sulbactam, and carbapenems.

This high dose resulted in a peak CSF concentration of 2. In the case described, multidrug-resistant acinetobacter meningitis developed after insertion of a lumbar drain in a patient with head injury and was successfully treated with tigecycline 50 mg intravenously twice daily.

Given that most patients with acinetobacter meningitis have undergone neurosurgical procedures and have readily accessible CSF via external ventricular drains, follow-up CSF cultures can be readily done. Antimicrobial activity of cefepime tested against ceftazidime-resistant Gram-negative clinical strains from North American hospitals: Lewin Current opinion in neurology Disposition and elimination of meropenem in cerebrospinal fluid of hydrocephalic patients with external ventriculostomy.

Absence of convulsive liability of doripenem, a new carbapenem antibiotic, in comparison with beta-lactam antibiotics. Nonconvulsive status epilepticus due to cefepime in a patient with normal renal function. These results should be viewed as a conservative estimate, since these patients only had minimal inflammation of the meninges.

Combined colistin and rifampicin therapy for carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infections: Pharmacodynamic profiling of cefepime in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid of hospitalized patients with external ventriculostomies.


Impact of pharmacodynamic dosing of meropenem on emergence of resistance during treatment of ventilator-associated pneumonia: Loss of outer membrane proteins has been described in A baumannii2 and it could be speculated that this may occur during carbapenem intraaventricular of this organism.

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of cephalosporins in cerebrospinal fluid. Therefore, an important adjunct to treatment of postneurosurgical acinetobacter meningitis in patients with ventricular shunts may be shunt removal.

Clinical and laboratory standards institute. Rea RS, Capitano B. Clinical features dpse prognostic factors in adults with bacterial meningitis. At present, dexamethasone is neither recommended as a specific adjunct to antibiotic treatment of meningitis due to Gram-negative bacilli with the exception of Haemophilus influenzae type B nor for neonatal meningitis. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antibiotics in otitis media.

Post-surgical meningitis due to multiresistant Acinetobacter baumannii. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. In summary, pharmacodynamic considerations would suggest that ceftazidime or cefepime would be poor choices for therapy of acinetobacter amikacni even against susceptible strains.
