Although there is a lot of attention, because the jacket design and advanced surgical techniques for outcomes for patients, obtained as the number of infected joint surgery, the risk of praise usually less orthopedic surgeon and hospital management of most concern, for repair. The main problem with this type of infection symptoms, a few days or weeks or even months, I was the strength of the problem is clear. By connecting time between surgery and infection, which may be vague, that the painting was not natural, and the operation itself is actually the reason, if the conclusion of the infection. What is clear is that, as medical science and technology to help surgeons in the works, is the possibility of injury during or after surgery, minimal, and almost always comes to human error.
Replace the current spread of about 1% or less. Correction method for this infection causes further loss of blood, and the process takes more time, more often in the number of complications and inpatient hospitalizations were high for a long time.
Can be reduced The University of Texas Health Sciences University in collaboration Rice University Center and Shriners Hospital for Children in the United States in order to develop applications for the transplantation of bone infection. The researchers examined by Katherine Ambrose, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the UTHealth Medical School microscopic metal porous coated implants in 11 cases to be 100% effective in preventing infection out. Tissue and bone around the implant without glaze antibiotics, infection in 64% of the average case.
It quoted a press release from the University of Ambrose said microspheres appeared to some problems that current barriers to team medical personnel to resolve inflammation and bone osteomyelitis in the face. Microspheres are delivered directly to the surgical site, and the elimination of systemic antibiotics throughout the body. Ambrose suggests, “Because antibiotic delivery system is microscopic size, they do not interfere with the healing total joint replacement surgery occurs. These results indicate the possibility of microscopic antibiotics, recently in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery published.
According to the Australian National Joint Replacement Registry Total Knee Replacement 48 783 and 38 432 hip replacements in 2013, with an average bed costs more than 700 dollar per day in Australia, and even half of the health care system we distributed a significant impact. The development of antibiotic-coated seeds can be the difference to be here.
