Özet

Objective: Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) is frequent cause of bacteraemias and associated with substantial mortality. We defined risk factors for mortality among patients with either community-acquired (CA) or healthcare-associated (HCA) MSSA bacteraemia with special emphasis on treatment options including cefazolin and other antimicrobials (mainly ampicillin- sulbactam).
