Did you know that mortality is x3 times more likely once a cardiac infection takes hold? Therefore preventative solutions are vital.
In our latest Journal Club video, editorial board member, Dr Anil Saxena meets with the lead author of the WRAP-IT study, Dr Suneet Mittal.
Hear them discuss the outcomes of the randomised WRAP-IT global study which aimed to assess if the incremental use of an antibacterial envelope could help drive zero infections.
They discuss the results, insights into what role the envelope plays in the prevention of device-related infections, considerations around cost-effectiveness and which patient populations might benefit from the antibacterial envelope in light of the results.
