Evaluation of microscopic flora and its antibiotic susceptibility from RCT failure cases: An in vivo study

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Mishan Manohar Jaiswal, Dr. Neha Kumari and Dr. Sarita Singh
ABSTRACT:Background: The persistence of disease in periapical tissues is most commonly associated with difficulties or mishaps which occur during or after initial endodontic treatment.
Aims and Objective: To isolate and identify the organisms in root canal failed cases & its current antibiotic susceptibility pattern.
Materials and Methods: study was conducted on 51 patients attending the OPD of dental Department Nalanda Medical College and Hospital, Patna. The results were analyzed using VITEK-2 automated analyser (Bio Merieux UK).
Results: A total of 18 types of bacteria were isolated and among them 17.3% cases reported E- faecalis and another 15.2% cases reported E-cloacae complex. Pseudomonas aeruginosa accounted for 8.7% while 6.5% constituted of E-faecium, Escherichia coli etc.
Conclusion: Enterococcus species was found in majority of cases indicates that it is the predominant bacteria responsible for endodontic failure.
