[Mechanical strength of antibiotic-impregnated bone cement on Day 0 and Day 15: a biomechanical study with Surgical Simplex P and teicoplanin].


OBJECTIVES To determine the maximum amount of a specific antibiotic added to 40 g acrylic bone cement in terms of the effect on mechanical properties of the bone cement on Day 0 and after antibiotic release on Day 15. METHODS In an experimental design, eight teicoplanin doses (0, 400 mg, 800 mg, 1200 mg, 1600 mg, 2000 mg, 3200 mg and 4000 mg) were added… (More)
