In this review, a panel of experts in the field of VAP from four European societies has tried to provide an overview of the most important aspects under debate. In order to stimulate further research and discussion, presentation of the main topics was focussed on the breaking current knowledge. The issue of attributable mortality, which is also a matter of controversy, will not be addressed in this review. Each section of the review has been written in an attempt to answer three main questions: 1) what is not controversial, 2) what is still controversial and 3) what should be investigated? The following topics were reviewed: clinical diagnosis, bacteriological and histological aspects, aetiology, diagnostic techniques, antimicrobial treatment and prevention.
