Helpful review, common problem. Note, routine superficial wound cultures are NOT helpful- the results have poor sensitivity and specificity for finding out what organism might be present.

Also, initial evaluation of wounds that could be due to osteo would involve plain film x-ray, c reactive protein, and probe to bone testing.
