An in vitro study was carried out in order to investigate the antibiotic release mechanism and the antibacterial properties of commercially (Palacos® R+G and Palacos® LV+G) and manually (Palacos® R+GM and Palacos® LV+GM) blended gentamicin-loaded bone cements. Samples were characterized by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and compression strength… CONTINUE READING
