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.
