This paper presents the results of a microbiological study of clinical specimens obtained from 64 patients with chronic post-traumatic osteomyelitis of long bones during the 2011–2013. A total of 136 clinical strains were isolated and identified to a species level with the following antimicrobial susceptibility testing. A relative resistance coefficient was also calculated in the study. The etiology of chronic post-traumatic osteomyelitis in preoperation period was found to be changed, although Staphylococcus aureus remained the main causative agent. In addition, decreased antimicrobial resistance rates for S. aureus and reduced prevalence of MRSA were observed.
