A new study has exam­ined how bac­te­ria clog med­ical devices, and the result isn´t pretty. The microbes join to cre­ate slimy rib­bons that tan­gle and trap other pass­ing bac­te­ria, cre­at­ing a full block­age in a star­tlingly short period of time. The find­ing could help shape strate­gies for pre­vent­ing clog­ging of devices such as stents – which are implanted in the body to keep open blood...
