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.
