Bone cement and cementation technique, antibiotics and bone cement spacers: what you should know

Giovanni Calonego, BS - Scientific Coordinator, TecresSpA (Italy)

Acrylic bone cement has been used successfully in orthopaedic practice for more than 50 years, thanks to the pioneering work of Sir John Charnley in the late 50s (Charnley, 1972).The great results achieved by Charnley with the low friction arthroplasty open the way to the work of Buchholz that, in the early 70s,realized that bone cement could be a great material also for the delivery of drugs thus helping in the reduction of the infection rate (Buchholz, 1981).
