Abstract

The authors have quantitatively evaluated and compared in vitro the Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis strain adhesiveness on various types of silicone used in surgery. The results show that there are some adhesiveness differences between the two assayed strains (S. epidermidis adhesiveness > S. aureus adhesiveness) and among silicone types (adhesiveness on soft silicones > adhesiveness on hard silicones). However all silicones are suitable substrata for in vitro bacterial adhesion.
