Courtesy of Daniel Schlatterer, DO
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.
Hardware removal and repeat debridement on the medial side of the ankle resulted in a large dead space which was managed using STIMULAN paste. Vancomycin and tobramycin were used to treat the infection.
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. The treating physician is responsible for deciding the type and quantity of antibiotic used. Concurrent use of locally administered antibiotics may affect setting time.
The mixing of antibiotics with the STIMULAN Kit / STIMULAN Rapid Cure device is considered off-label usage of the medicinal product. To do so is at the professional risk of the surgeon / healthcare professional.
This page may include the use of STIMULAN or techniques that go beyond the current clearance/ approval granted by the relevant regulatory authority. Please contact your local representative for further information.
