Understanding biofilm formation in intravascular device-related infections

Abstract

Here we will describe the different steps of bacterial biofilm formation on intravascular catheters and strategies that can be developed to avoid or reduce their clinical consequences. Such a physiopathologic scheme can also be applied to the formation of biofilm on other intravascular devices such as cardiac prosthetic valves or pacemakers.
