Liquid antibiotics in bone cement: an effective way to improve the efficiency of antibiotic release in antibiotic loaded bone cement.

Chang YH, Tai CL, Hsu HY, Hsieh PH, Lee MS, Ueng SW - Bone Joint Res (2014)

Bottom Line: Adding vancomycin or amphotericin B antibiotic powder in distilled water before mixing with bone cement can significantly improve the efficiency of antibiotic release than can loading ALBC with the same dose of antibiotic powder.This simple and effective method for preparation of ALBCs can significantly improve the efficiency of antibiotic release in ALBCs.Cite this article: Bone Joint Res 2014;3:246-51.

Charts showing antibacterial activityof eluate samples from bone cement with different preparations,as determined by agar-disk diffusion bioassay. The data are presentedin terms of inhibition of the test organisms: figure 1a - methicillin-resistant Staphylococcusaureus and b) Candida albicans. The growthwas visually compared with standard samples containing differentconcentrations of a) vancomycin and b) amphotericin B.
