Bennett, Michael I. and Tai, Y. M. A. and Symmonds, J. M. (1994) Staphylococcal meningitis following synchromed intrathecal pump implant: A case report. Pain, 56 (2). pp. 243-244. ISSN 1872-6623Full text not available from this repository.
Staphylococcal meningitis associated with implantation of an intrathecal drug pump for spasticity was successfully treated by intrathecal vancomycin delivered by the same pump. This produced high CSF antibiotic levels, and the pump and catheter system did not have to be removed. We are unable to identify a similar case reported in the literature to date.
