AbstractCarbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales and specifically Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (KPC-Kp) are rapidly spreading worldwide. The prognosis of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) caused by KPC-Kp is not well known. Our study tries to assess whether ventilator-associated pneumonia caused by a KPC-Kp strain is associated with higher all-cause mortality than that caused by carbapenem-susceptible isolates. This is a retrospective cohort study of patients with VAP due to K. pneumoniae from a 35-bed polyvalent intensive care unit in a university hospital (>40,000 annual admissions) between January 2012 and December 2016. Adjusted multivariate analysis was used to study the association of KPC-Kp with 30-day all-cause mortality (Cox regression). We analyze 69 cases of K. pneumoniae VAP, of which 39 were produced by a KPC-Kp strain with high-level resistance to meropenem (MIC > 16 mg/ml). All-cause mortality at 30 days was 41% in the KPC-Kp group (16/39) and 33.3% in the carbapenem-susceptible cases (10/30). KPC-Kp etiology was not associated with higher mortality when controlled for confounders (adjusted hazard ratio [HR], 1.25; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.46 to 3.41). Adequate targeted therapy (HR, 0.03; 95% CI, <0.01 to 0.23) was associated with all-cause mortality. Assuming the limitations due to the available sample size, the prognosis of VAP caused by KPC-Kp is similar to VAPs caused by carbapenem-susceptible K. pneumoniae when appropriate treatment is used.
