Potential of Continuous Local Antibiotic Perfusion Therapy for Fracture-Related Infections.

Infect Dis Ther 2022 May 21. Epub 2022 May 21.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Kitakyushu, Japan.

Introduction: Fracture-related infections (FRIs) are challenging for orthopedic surgeons, as conventional surgical treatment and systemic antimicrobial therapy cannot completely control local infections. Continuous local antibiotic perfusion (CLAP) is a novel and innovative therapy for bone and soft-tissue infections, and is expected to eradicate biofilms by maintaining a sustained high concentration of antimicrobial agents at the infected site. If CLAP therapy can eradicate infection even in cases with implants while preserving the implants, it would be an ideal and effective treatment for local refractory infections. Read More
