Characteristics of the ability to biofilm for mation among microor ganisms isolated from gunshot and blast wounds of extremities
Combat wounds are characterized by long healing progress, which is complicated by inflammatory processes. Established that chronic infectious complications caused by bacteria can form biofilms. The aim of study was to evaluate the ability to form biofilms microflora released from combat wounds. Among the seventy-seven isolates 57 (74%) found the ability to biofilm formation. All isolated strains of Pseudomonas, thirty Akinetes bacteria strains (73%), 5 strains (66%) Enterococcus spp formed biofilms. Enterobacteria and staphylococcus proved the weakest biofilm-forming.
