Abstract

The management of musculoskeletal infections is an increasing challenge to clinicians. Bioimplants provide a unique system for skeletal specific drug delivery. Antibiotic-impregnated beads and spacers can be used to treat chronic osteomyelitis and deep soft-tissue infections locally with higher antibiotic concentrations, while avoiding potential systemic side effects.
