Abstract

Severe abdominal sepsis and septic shock are common problems in intensive care units (ICUs), and carry high mortality. The purpose of this economic analysis was to determine the cost-effectiveness of polymyxin B immobilized fiber column (PMX-F) plus conventional therapy (CT) (PMX-F-CT) versus CT alone for patients with severe sepsis/septic shock of abdominal origin, in the perspective of the Italian hospital.
