Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are probably the most frequent problems of diabetes, and infections happen in additional than half of foot ulcers.1 These ulcers steadily turn out to be contaminated, thus, resulting in diabetic foot osteomyelitis (DFO), and requiring well being care, antimicrobial therapy, and decrease extremity amputations.2 Usually, DFU with osteomyelitis requires a multidisciplinary method, owing to difficulties in medical prognosis and therapy.3–5 Nonetheless, figuring out the pathogens accountable is difficult by the presence of each pathogens and colonizers in most DFOs. Due to this fact, correct pathogen diagnoses and focused antibacterial remedy for DFOs are urgently wanted, and are depending on correct specimen assortment, cultivation, pathogen identification, and susceptibility testing.6 Present proof helps the analysis of bone specimens as the most effective dependable diagnostic approach for bone infections; this technique supplies dependable information on associated pathogenic micro organism and antimicrobial susceptibility.7–12 Thus, the kind of specimen assortment could also be essential in figuring out the true pathogens underlying DFOs. Three strategies can be utilized to acquire specimens for tradition from DFOs: swab, tissue biopsy, and bone biopsy. Earlier research have advised that bone biopsy is the gold commonplace culturing approach for DFOs, whereas swab cultures are the least dependable, as a result of they’ve been reported to include excessive numbers of colonizers and sometimes lack the true pathogens pathogens.3,8,9,13–16 Nonetheless, bone specimens can not all the time be collected from DFOs due to issues relating to an infection unfold, ischemia, or damaging adjoining buildings.17 Due to this fact, swabs or gentle tissue specimens are used as a substitute of bone specimens for microbiological assays. Moreover, swabs or gentle tissue could also be collected by any member of a health-care staff, and swab or gentle tissue specimens might be despatched to a microbiology laboratory instantly if surgical debridement have to be delayed. Due to this fact, the outcomes from swab or gentle tissue specimen cultures are generally used for figuring out pathogens and choosing antibiotics. Nonetheless, earlier analysis has advised that swabs and gentle tissue specimens don’t present an correct image of the organisms within the deep tissue and bone biopsy samples.8,13–16,18 As well as, the above research have proven massive disparities within the pathogenic micro organism cultured from swabs or gentle tissue specimens versus bone tissue specimens. Nonetheless, research evaluating the outcomes of bone, swab, and gentle tissue specimen cultures for sufferers with DFOs are missing. As well as, 77.8% of sufferers with DFO show bacterial resistance to the preliminary empirical antibiotics administered.19 Due to this fact, the preliminary focused antibiotic remedy is crucial for the administration of DFO.
On this research, we retrospectively investigated whether or not the bone tissue tradition outcomes of sufferers with DFOs had been in step with these of swabs and gentle tissues, and we analyzed the distribution and susceptibility of pathogenic micro organism in bone tissue, with an intention to reexamine the reliability of swabs, gentle tissue specimens, and bone tissue specimens, and to offer steerage for DFOs in sufferers with focused antibacterial remedy. To our data, that is the primary research concurrently evaluating the microbiological concordance within the tradition outcomes of bone tissue, swabs, and gentle tissues in sufferers with DFO.
Sufferers and Strategies
From Could 2016 to December 2019, a complete of 230 sufferers with DFO had been admitted to the Division of Endocrinology of the First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical College. In response to the next inclusion and exclusion standards, 60 diabetic sufferers with diabetic foot infections (DFIs) with DFO had been retrospectively evaluated, thus, leading to 209 complete pathogens. This retrospective evaluate used tradition information from sufferers with DFI who had clinically contaminated ulcers that had been labeled as extreme on the premise of IWGDF standards.10 All sufferers with DFO included within the research had been required to fulfill the next situations: 1) the ulcer lasted greater than 2 weeks; 2) the ulcer overlaid a bony prominence; 3) probing of the bone on the ulcer base was constructive, or foot ulcers had main bone publicity; 4) radiological abnormalities advised lively osteomyelitis; 5) the discharge prognosis was DFO (on the premise of the diagnostic standards of the 2020 Worldwide Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF) pointers10); 6) every affected person was required to have swab specimen, gentle tissue, and bone tissue specimen tradition outcomes. Sufferers with Charcot’s joint and gangrene had been excluded from the research. This research was performed in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki and was permitted by the Institutional Evaluate Board on the First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical College (2020–238). The requirement for knowledgeable consent was waived due to the nameless nature of the research and retrospective evaluation of the information.
Three cultures had been collected from each affected person. Swab cultures from the bottom of the ulcer for every affected person had been taken at admission (with out use of antibacterial medicine). The ulcer wound was flushed with saline answer, and the necrotic tissue and exudates on the floor had been eliminated. Swabs had been instantly scrubbed and rolled in a “Z” sample onto the ulcer floor by nurses after which had been positioned in sterile take a look at tubes. Comfortable tissue and bone tissue specimens had been collected by plastic surgeons throughout amputation (57 circumstances) and debridement (three circumstances) after admission. To acquire the deep gentle tissue and bone tissue specimens, the deep gentle tissues and bone tissues of the amputated or debrided elements had been lower with totally different sterile devices after which positioned in sterilized take a look at tubes. For the gathering of bone specimens, if the affected person with DFO had a fracture earlier than the operation, the bone tissues on either side of the damaged ends had been collected; within the absence of fracture, the bone tissue on the uncovered space of the bone or close to the proximal finish of the ulcer was collected. For gentle tissue specimens, the gentle tissue on the junction of necrotic and non-necrotic tissue was sharply obtained. Three cultures had been despatched to the microbiology lab inside 1 hour for pathogen tradition.
Bacterial isolates had been recognized on the species stage with a VITEK 2 Compact computerized microbiological analyzer and the Okay-B (Kirby-Bauer) technique. Every of the strains cultured from the three specimens was recognized and assessed for antibiotic susceptibility in accordance with the Medical and Laboratory Requirements Institute protocol. Multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains had been assessed in accordance with the usual definitions of multidrug-resistant, extensively drug-resistant, and pandrug-resistant micro organism printed by Magiorakos.20
Concordance was outlined because the discovering of precisely the identical bacterial species with equivalent susceptibility patterns in each specimens.13 Kappa worth and proportion of concordance had been calculated to evaluate the concordance. Kappa worth, 0–0.20, no settlement, 0.21–0.39, minimal settlement, 0.40–0.59, weak settlement, 0.60–0.79, reasonable settlement, 0.80–0.90, sturdy settlement, above 0.90, virtually excellent settlement.21
All information had been analyzed by SPSS 22.0 software program. The continual variables had been expressed as imply ± commonplace deviation (x±s), and the explicit variables had been examined by the chi-square take a look at. The statistical significance stage was set at P<0.05.
Traits of Sufferers and Ulcers
A complete of 60 sufferers with DFO with swab, gentle tissue, and bone tissue tradition outcomes had been included for 45 (75.0%) males and 15 (25.0%) ladies, as proven in Table 1. The sufferers had been between 34 and 87 years of age, with a mean age of 62.52 ± 10.60 years, and 40 (66.7%) sufferers had been over 60 years of age.

No bacterial tradition outcomes had been obtained on admission, and the preliminary use of antibacterial medicine was empirical. The empirical drugs had been primarily piperacillin, tazobactam, levofloxacin, teicoplanin, vancomycin, imipenem, and meropenem. In the course of the interval after admission and earlier than surgical procedure, the anti-infective program was dominated by two antibacterial medicine, accounting for 83.33% of the medicine used, and a single antibacterial drug accounting for the remaining 16.67% of medication administered. Of the 2 mixed antibacterial drug regimens, piperacillin/tazobactam and teicoplanin accounted for 32.00%, and had been adopted by levofloxacin and teicoplanin (18.33%), imipenem-cilastatin sodium and teicoplanin (10.00%), piperacillin/tazobactam and vancomycin (6.67%), and levofloxacin and piperacillin/tazobactam (5.00%). The one antimicrobial brokers had been levofloxacin (50.00%), piperacillin and tazobactam (40.00%), and teicoplanin (10.00%). Throughout this era, the common period of use of those antimicrobials was 11.90 ± 7.22 days.
The Distribution of Bacterial Pathogens from Swabs, Comfortable Tissue, and Bone Specimens In response to Tradition Approach
As proven in Table 2, 58 (96.7%) of the sufferers had constructive swab tradition outcomes, and 50 sufferers (83.3%) had constructive gentle tissue and bone tissue outcomes. Among the many 77 strains of micro organism remoted from the swab specimens, 41 strains (55.8%) had been Gram-positive micro organism, 33 strains (42.9%) had been Gram-negative micro organism, and three strains (3.9%) had been fungi. The imply variety of isolates per swab specimen was 1.28 (vary, 1–3). Among the many 67 strains of micro organism remoted from the gentle tissue specimens, 35 strains (52.2%) had been Gram-positive micro organism, 27 strains (42.3%) had been Gram-negative micro organism, and 5 strains (7.5%) had been fungi. The imply variety of isolates per gentle tissue tradition specimen was 1.12 (vary, 1–3). Among the many 65 strains of micro organism remoted from the bone specimens, 34 strains (52.3%) had been Gram-positive micro organism, 26 strains (40.0%) had been Gram-negative micro organism, and 5 strains (7.7%) had been fungi. The imply variety of isolates per bone specimen was 1.08 (vary, 1–3). Our outcomes indicated no important distinction within the composition of pathogens (Gram-positive micro organism, Gram-negative micro organism, and fungi) cultured within the three forms of specimens (P=0.87). Staphylococcus aureus was the commonest pathogen in varied specimens and the commonest Gram-positive bacterium. Staphylococcus aureus accounted for 32.6%, 37.1%, and 29.4% of Gram-positive micro organism in swabs, gentle tissues, and bone tissues, respectively. Enterobacteriaceae was the dominant group of Gram-negative micro organism. The proportion of Enterobacteriaceae in three specimens accounted for 74.2%, 85.2%, and 84.6% of Gram-negative micro organism, respectively. Proteus mirabilis and Morganella morganii had been the commonest Gram-negative micro organism; Proteus mirabilis accounted for 19.4%, 22.2%, and 23.1% of the Gram-negative micro organism in swabs, gentle tissues, and bone tissues, whereas the proportion of Morganella morganii in Gram-negative micro organism was 19.4%, 22.2%, and 23.1%, respectively.

The Distribution of MDR Micro organism
As proven in Table 2, the variety of MDR strains remoted from swab, gentle tissue, and bone tissue specimens was 20 (26.0%), 25 (37.3%), and 22 (33.8%), respectively, and the ratio of MDR micro organism to complete pathogens in gentle tissue and bone tissue was increased than that in swab specimens, however there was no important distinction among the many three tissue specimens (P = 0.32).
The MDR bacterial distribution in swab specimens was as follows: 42.9% of Staphylococcus aureus had been MDR micro organism, and solely two strains had been methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); 83.3% of Proteus mirabilis had been MDR micro organism; 40% of Morganella morganii had been MDR micro organism; all three strains of Escherichia coli had been extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) producing micro organism; and a carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii remoted from the three specimens with equivalent susceptibility was insensitive to all examined antibacterial remedies and confirmed intermediate sensitivity to minocycline.
The MDR bacterial distribution in gentle tissue specimens was as follows: 23.1% of Staphylococcus aureus had been MDR micro organism, solely two strains had been MRSA; 100.0% of Proteus mirabilis had been MDR micro organism; and 66.7% of Morganella morganii had been MDR micro organism. 4 ESBL-producing micro organism had been remoted, together with one pressure of Proteus mirabilis and three strains of Escherichia coli. A vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus gallinarum was additionally remoted.
MDR micro organism in bone specimens had been largely the identical as these in gentle tissues, with the next variations: 10.0% of Staphylococcus aureus had been MDR micro organism, and 60.0% of Morganella morganii had been MDR micro organism. Three ESBL-producing micro organism had been remoted, together with one pressure of Klebsiella pneumoniae and two strains of Escherichia coli.
Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Pathogens from Bone Specimens
As proven in Table 6, Staphylococcus aureus was extra prone to gentamicin, linezolid, vancomycin, tigecycline, rifampicin, and quinupristin/dalfopristin, with a susceptibility of 100%, adopted by ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, and sulfamethoxazole, with a susceptibility of 90.0%, and it confirmed poor susceptibility to erythromycin (70.0%) and clindamycin (70.0%). Enterococcus faecalis was extra prone to ampicillin, linezolid, vancomycin, tigecycline, teicoplanin, and penicillin G, with a sensitivity of 100%, adopted by levofloxacin (71.4%), moxifloxacin (85.7%), and streptomycin (66.7%). The susceptibility of Enterococcus faecium to quinupristin/dalfopristin, linezolid, vancomycin, and tigecycline was 100%.
Desk 6 Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Gram-Constructive Micro organism from DFO Sufferers (%)
As proven in Table 7, Gram-negative micro organism, all Enterobacteriaceae, had been 100% delicate to meropenem and imipenem. Piperacillin/tazobactam and ertapenem additionally confirmed very sturdy antimicrobial exercise, and all Enterobacteriaceae, besides one pressure of ESBL-producing Escherichia coli, had been delicate to each antimicrobial brokers. Proteus mirabilis was 100% delicate to the antibacterial brokers aztreonam, ceftazidime, cefotetan, cefoperazone/sulbactam, piperacillin/tazobactam, and carbapenems, adopted by amikacin (83.3%), cefoxitin (83.3%), and levofloxacin (66.7%). Morganella morganii was 100% delicate to amikacin, aztreonam, cefoperazone/sulbactam, cefotetan, ertapenem, cefepime, piperacillin/tazobactam, and carbapenems, and comparatively delicate to ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, ceftriaxone, and levofloxacin, with a susceptibility of 80.0%. Escherichia coli in bone tissue cultures had been all EBSL-producing micro organism and had a sensitivity of 100.0% to imipenem, meropenem, and tigecycline.
Desk 7 Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Gram-Detrimental Micro organism from DFO Sufferers (%)
DFU infections are a serious growing downside worldwide for individuals with diabetes and are liable to progress to DFO.22 The antibacterial therapy for DFO is extraordinarily difficult, and it requires focused antimicrobial remedy in accordance with the pathogenic micro organism in contaminated bone biopsy specimen cultures. Nonetheless, bone biopsy tradition isn’t straightforward to carry out routinely in medical follow. Due to this fact, DFU swabs and deep tissue specimen cultures are used as a substitute of bone biopsy cultures. Our research stories the concordance between bone tissue tradition outcomes, and swab and gentle tissue tradition outcomes. This research additionally analyzed the antimicrobial susceptibility of bone specimens to offer steerage for the therapy of sufferers with DFO.
The distribution of pathogenic micro organism cultured in three specimens was dominated by Gram-positive micro organism (greater than 50.0%), in settlement with printed outcomes.8,9,13 Gram-negative micro organism accounted for greater than 40.0% of the pathogenic micro organism cultured from three specimens. Due to this fact, the outcomes counsel that empirical antibacterial therapy selections for treating DFOs ought to think about each Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial infections. Our outcomes additionally confirmed that Staphylococcus aureus was the commonest bacterium remoted from matching swab, gentle tissue, and bone tissue cultures.13,16,23 The opposite commonest Gram-negative pathogens cultured from three specimens had been Proteus mirabilis and Morganella morganii, in distinction to the outcomes reported by Elamurugan,8 Malone,9 and Senneville.13 These findings point out that dominant DFO pathogens have regional variations. General, pathogens had been equally represented in cultures of swab specimens, gentle tissue, and bone specimens.
The imply variety of strains of pathogenic micro organism remoted from the swab and bone specimens was inconsistent with these reported by Senneville13,16 and Kessler.24 The imply variety of strains remoted from the swabs in our research (1.28) was lower than these reported in Kessler (2.04), Senneville (2006) (1.58), and Senneville (2009) (2.51). The imply variety of strains remoted from the bone samples in our research (1.08) was additionally lower than these reported in Senneville (2006) (1.54) and Senneville (2009) (1.35). These dissimilarities could also be as a result of most sufferers with DFO (78.3%) included in our research had been administered antimicrobials earlier than admission, and all sufferers obtained antimicrobial remedy earlier than the gathering of bone specimens.
In our research, the equivalent and partially equivalent proportions between the swab and bone tissue cultures had been a lot decrease than these between the gentle tissue and bone tissue cultures, and the concordance within the pathogenic micro organism remoted and the kappa worth between the gentle tissue tradition and bone specimen tradition outcomes was increased than that between the swab and bone outcomes, thus indicating that bone specimen outcomes had been extra carefully correlated with gentle tissue than swab specimen outcomes, and gentle tissue tradition outcomes have higher medical reference worth. These outcomes had been in step with the findings of Elamurugan,8 Senneville,13 Bozkurt,17 and Nelson.18 Nonetheless, the gentle tissue tradition outcomes couldn’t totally establish pathogenic micro organism from contaminated bone, and bone specimens stay the one definitive method to decide the causative pathogen in DFO.7–12 Nonetheless, when bone tissue specimens will not be accessible in medical follow, gentle tissue specimens might be thought-about as a proxy. Though the outcomes between swabs and bone tissue had been solely 25% equivalent, we discovered that a number of subsequent swab cultures cultivated the pathogenic micro organism from contaminated bone. As well as, the concordance and kappa worth between the swab and bone specimen tradition outcomes was a lot decrease for Gram-positive micro organism than Gram-negative micro organism. This outcome signifies that superficial swabs don’t reliably establish bone micro organism in sufferers with DFO, however the Gram-negative micro organism cultured within the swab specimens extra reliably symbolize bone pathogenic micro organism than Gram-positive micro organism.
The antibacterial impact of antimicrobial therapy for sufferers with DFO is very correlated with the resistance of pathogenic micro organism, significantly in MDR infections. In our research, the proportion of MDR micro organism from gentle tissue and bone tissue cultured micro organism accounted for greater than one-third of the full cultured micro organism, and 28.3% of sufferers with DFO had constructive MDR outcomes. Such findings had been much like these reported by Heurtier.25 Affected person elements, corresponding to poor glycemic management, ulcer dimension larger than 4 cm, frequent hospitalization for a similar DFU, the period of diabetic foot an infection, the size of hospital keep, osteomyelitis, and former administration and period of antibiotic therapy are important threat elements for infections with MDR.26,27 Due to this fact, sufferers with the above traits might be thought-about to be at excessive threat for MDR, and precedence must be given to focused antimicrobial remedy firstly of treatment. Notably, MDR in Proteus mirabilis (100.0%), Morganella morganii (60.0%), and ESBL-producing Escherichia coli (100.0%) accounted for a comparatively excessive proportion of the Gram-negative micro organism from bone tissue cultured micro organism, and antimicrobial susceptibility testing for these micro organism must be improved.
In response to the traits of the antimicrobial susceptibility of pathogens from bone specimens on this research, and the home and worldwide pointers for DFIs,10,28 empirical antibacterial choices are made to deal with DFO infections. Nonetheless, sufferers with DFO confirmed important bacterial resistance to the preliminary empirical antibiotics.19 MDR happens in solely 11.8% of Gram-positive micro organism, and 10.0% of Staphylococcus aureus is MRSA, which contains solely 2.9% of the full Gram-positive micro organism. Due to this fact, DFO attributable to Gram-positive micro organism might be handled with moxifloxacin, linezolid, vancomycin, and different glycopeptides. Owing to the low medical effectivity and hostile results,29,30 tigecycline isn’t beneficial by the 2019 IWGDF replace for DFO,10 though all Gram-positive micro organism had been delicate to tigecycline on this research. In our research, Gram-positive cocci in DFO confirmed a better resistance towards clindamycin and ciprofloxacin, and subsequently, these brokers will not be beneficial for preliminary empirical antibacterial therapy alone. The MDR Gram-negative micro organism accounted for 69.2% of all Gram-negative micro organism, whereas ESBL-producing Enterobacter accounted for less than 11.5% and carbapenem-resistant micro organism accounted for 7.6%. Due to this fact, besides in high-risk sufferers with DFO with ESBL-producing and carbapenem-resistant micro organism, DFO attributable to Gram-negative micro organism might be handled with piperacillin/tazobactam, cefoperazone/sulbactam, ertapenem, imipenem, and meropenem. Though IWGDF pointers advocate that DFO in high-risk ESBL-producing micro organism might be handled with ertapenem, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, aminoglycosides, and polymyxin, the resistance of ertapenem and levofloxacin in our research was comparatively excessive. Due to this fact, imipenem and meropenem had been the primary selections, however we don’t advocate ertapenem and levofloxacin for Gram-negative micro organism in sufferers with DFO.
There have been limitations of the current research. Firstly, up to78.3% of DFO sufferers had used antibacterial medicine after they had been admitted, which may result in a discount within the variety of cultured micro organism; secondly, most of DFO sufferers had been in severe situation after they had been admitted to the hospital, which results in the potential choice bias; thirdly, the swab specimen microbial outcomes had been solely adopted the primary tradition constructive outcome and deserted the next tradition constructive outcome, and bone specimens and gentle tissues had been obtained after receiving antibiotic therapy; fourthly, anaerobic micro organism outcomes had been missing in bacterial drug susceptibility take a look at. As well as, the pattern dimension of this research was a little bit small since DFO sufferers had fewer amputations. Due to this fact, a potential, multi-center research must be performed sooner or later to additional discover the concordance between bone tissue tradition outcomes with swab specimens and gentle tissue specimens in DFO sufferers for offering extra cheap antibacterial drug selections.
Our outcomes point out that gentle tissue tradition outcomes have extra dependable microbiological concordance to establish DFO micro organism than swab tradition outcomes, however they can not totally establish DFO micro organism. Focused antibiotic remedy for DFO must be based mostly on antimicrobial susceptibility testing in bone tissue specimen cultures. The research might help in figuring out preliminary empirical medical antibacterial therapies and subsequent focused antibacterial remedies for sufferers with DFO.
