#912: Rational Use of Dual Antibiotic Loaded Bone Cement in Revision
09 Dec 2021
Event details

Recent publications emphasize benefits of dual antibiotic loaded bone cement (ALBC) with antibiotic combinations in infection prevention. But how about the septic situation? Do we also have new insights here? What is standard and what can be improved?

In cooperation with PALACADEMY®, the learning and knowledge platform for bone and joint surgery by Heraeus Medical, we present a multi-hub event, which takes a closer look at insights from the French experience. Experts from France discuss the “Rational use of (double) antibiotic loaded bone cement in revision” by sharing their own clinical data, summarizing existing evidence and discussing their concepts.

Why are antibiotic combinations necessary in septic situations and which combinations to choose? What is the benefit of targeted local antibiotic therapy, and when is broad-spectrum prophylaxis more effective? How to differentiate between superinfection and recurrent infection, and what is the best strategy to prevent re-revision? Are there special patient groups or procedures, where dual ALBC is recommended?

Please note that the event will be held in French language.

De récentes publications mettent en lumière les bénéfices de l’utilisation des ciments à deux antibiotiques afin de prévenir la survenue d’infections. Qu’en est-il pour les reprises de prothèses? Avons-nous du nouveau à ce sujet? Quel est le standard de prise en charge et quelles sont les possibles améliorations?

En collaboration avec PALACADEMY®, la plateforme de formation de chirurgie osseuse d’Heraeus Medical, nous présentons cet événement qui s’attardera sur les pratiques en France. Des experts français discuteront de “l’utilisation des ciments osseux à deux antibiotiques dans les chirurgies de reprises de prothèses” en partageant leurs expériences et données cliniques, et balayant la littérature et les concepts déjà existants.  

Pourquoi une combinaison d’antibiotiques est-elle nécessaire pour les indications de reprises et laquelle choisir ? Quel est l’intérêt de cibler une antibiothérapie locale? Comment faire la différence entre une superinfection et une récidive d’infection? Et quelle est la meilleure stratégie pour prévenir les re-reprises? Existe-t-il enfin des patients types ou des indications spécifiques, où le ciment à deux antibiotiques serait recommandé?

La session se tiendra en langue française.
