Clinical particulars

73-year-old female with osteomyelitis caused by Group B Streptococcus and MRSA infection.

Presented with exposed hardware and post-operative drainage issues, 1 year after pilon fracture repair and subsequently 2 weeks after removal of all hardware.

Treatment

Hardware removal and repeat debridement on the medial side of the ankle resulted in a large dead space which was managed using STIMULAN paste.

Outcome

6 months after treatment the patient was free from infection, fully weight bearing and without restrictions on activity – with complete absorption of STIMULAN paste.

 

For indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions see Instructions for Use. Concurrent use of locally administered antibiotics may affect setting time.
