ScienceCast ALBC - #001: Clinical Evidence for Prophylactic Use of ALBC
Aug 2020
Event details

With our ScienceCasts we present a special video format on Winglet: Current scientific topics are summarized by dedicated colleagues and discussed in terms of their value for clinical practice - well-founded, vivid and compact.

In the series “Myths and truths about antibiotic-loaded bone cement” launched by PALACADEMY®, the learning and knowledge platform for bone and joint surgery by Heraeus Medical, Volker Alt discusses the current status and new publications with his guest experts. The first episode focusses on the evidence for the use of single and dual-loaded ALBC. Is there a benefit? Can ALBC reduce the rates of Periprosthetic Joint Infections? Recent studies and papers are presented, analyzed and interpreted in the scientific context. Enjoy a differentiated dialogue in a highly efficient short video format and stay up-to-date.

Please check the “Top Resources” section for a detailed literature list and free articles.

I will learn to
  • Evaluate in which situations bone cement loaded with gentamicin brings additional benefit
  • Assess for which patient group dual-loaded bone cement reduces the risk for periprosthetic joint infection (PJI)
  • Differentiate between registry data from different countries and interpret the results regarding antibiotic-loaded bone cement (“Transatlantic Paradox”)
  • Consider cost saving aspects in PJI prevention
  • Be aware of differences in bone cement composition for antibiotic release and outcome
