Revision surgery in the presence of infection carries high risks. We describe our results using a new technique to treat these challenging problems. We treated infected nonunions with cavitary voids with adjuvant antibiotic loaded calcium sulfate–hydroxyapatite paste composite and autologous bone graft (ABG) layer technique coupled with stable fixation.
In conclusion, layered autologous bone grafting with adjuvant antibiotic-loaded calcium sulfate–hydroxyapatite paste has been shown to be effective and safe in revision arthrodesis, with low comorbidities in void gaps without infection recurrence.
