Abstract

Poststernotomy mediastinitis (PSM) remains a serious infection and is significantly associated with high morbidity, short-term and long-term mortality. Gram-negative bacteria (GNB) are an underestimated cause of PSM, and there is little information on the risk factors, prevention, diagnosis and management of GNB PSM.
