Three patients bitten by cats in hand hospitalized infections common diagnosed

According to an astonishing research published in Journal of Hand Surgery, revealed that even cats can cause infections. It is not only the dogs who bite even cats do so. Surprisingly, the cats even inject bacteria into the joints and the tissues. The cat bites can be dangerous. As per the research it has been found that 1 in 3 patients having such wounds need to be hospitalized. The middle aged women are the common victims of these wounds. It was found that the bacteria injected by a cat bite can be more strain then the common animals. The senior author Brian Carlsen, M.D., from the Mayo Clinic plastic surgeon and orthopedic hand surgeon explains, “The dogs' teeth are blunter, so they don't tend to penetrate as deeply and they tend to leave a larger wound after they bite. The cats' teeth are sharp and they can penetrate very deeply, they can seed bacteria in the joint and tendon sheaths.”
