Arthrosis is the most common of all joint diseases and represents a progressive, age-related cartilage abrasion in the joints.
Due to the ageing and increasingly overweight population, knee and hip joint replacement operations will continue to increase because of degenerative joint wear.
Especially in cases of progressive arthrosis, joint replacement is usually the only treatment option. The use of antibiotic-loaded bone cement reduces the risk of revision and thus increases the survival rates of the prosthesis. The use of dual antibiotic-loaded bone cement has proven successful for patients at risk of infection.
