BACKGROUND The continuing emergence of new bone cements with additional antibiotics makes it important to establish which one will provide the most favourable antibiotic elution. An in vitro antibiotic elution and mechanical study was therefore carried out to compare a newer bone cement, SmartSet, with the established Palacos R cement. METHODS Samples were prepared with each cement adding 1 g gentamicin, 1 g of vancomycin, or 1 g of gentamicin and vancomycin. The samples were analysed using… CONTINUE READING
