Global Health Estimate of Invasive Mycobacterium chimaera Infections Associated with Heater-Cooler Devices in Cardiac Surgery


Sommerstein, Rami; Hasse, Barbara; Marschall, Jonas; Sax, Hugo; Genoni, Michele; Schlegel, Matthias; Widmer, Andreas F; Swiss Chimaera Taskforce (2018). Global Health Estimate of Invasive Mycobacterium chimaera Infections Associated with Heater-Cooler Devices in Cardiac Surgery. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 24(3):576-578.

Abstract

Investigations of a worldwide epidemic of invasive Mycobacterium chimaera associated with heater-cooler devices in cardiac surgery have been hampered by low clinical awareness and challenging diagnoses. Using data from Switzerland, we estimated the burden of invasive M. chimaera to be 156-282 cases/year in 10 major cardiac valve replacement market countries.
