Abstract

Introduction: Antimicrobial coated catheters have variable activities against microorganisms and little is known about their antifungal effect. The aim of the present study was to determine and compare the antifungal activities of silver sulfadiazinechlorhexidine impregnated, minocycline and rifampicin bonded and rifampicinmiconazole coated catheters against Candida albicans.
