Characterization of daptomycin-loaded antibiotic cement.


Antibiotics are commonly mixed with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement to suppress severe periprosthetic infections associated with total joint arthroplasty. The relationship between antibiotic concentration and the resulting elution kinetics remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to characterize the release of daptomycin from PMMA cement and the… (More)
