Septic Revision

A common cause of revisions is septic loosening due to a periprosthetic joint infection. Correct detection of the PJI-causing pathogen is essential for choosing the appropriate antibiotic – both systemic and local.

Depending on the spectrum of pathogens, COPAL® bone cements support the outcome of the treatment for septic revision. COPAL® bone cement combined with COPAL® knee moulds is an effective solution, particularly with the use of knee joint spacers.
