Abstract

Objectives: This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the current prevalence and trends over the past 10 years of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) antimicrobial resistance. Two researches independently searched two national (ULAKBIM, Turk Medline) and two international databases (PubMed, Web of Science) to identify studies on P. aeruginosa resistance to antimicrobials from 2007 to 2017.
