Abstract [en]

Following cardiothoracic surgery, deep sternal wound infection (SWI) remains one of the most severe complications. Recently, Propionibacterium acnes has been suspected as an etiological agent of deep SWI. However, this bacterium constitutes part of the resident micro-flora of the human skin. Consequently, findings of P. acnes in invasive samples are difficult to value. The aims of this study were to develop and optimize a pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) protocol for P. acnes, in order to investigate the genetic homogeneity/heterogeneity of P. acnes isolates from multiple tissue samples (predominantly biopsies), collected at different locations, from 12 patients during cardiothoracic reoperation. There were 24 distinguishable PFGE fingerprints identified among the P. acnes isolates (n=54). Five (42%) of the patients carried only isolates that were interpreted as presumably clonally related. From the remaining seven patients, two or three different P. acnes clones were cultured, however, from six of them, the clones were identified in multiple samples. P. acnes may be a relatively frequent etiological agent of postoperative cardiothoracic infections. Existence of several clonally related P. acnes isolates derived from multiple samples from patients suffering from deep SWI after cardiothoracic surgery has not previously been shown.
