Abstract Share this page

Abstract The use of local antibiotics from a biodegradable implant for chronic osteomyelitis is an attractive alternative. The implant delivers high tissue levels, obliterates dead space, aids bone repair and does not need to be removed. The purpose of this paper is to review our early clinical experience with custom-made calcium sulfate (Osteoset bone void filler) antibiotic-impregnated implants.
