BACKGROUND: The in vivo pharmacokinetics of gentamycin- loaded collagen fleeces in humans have not been described in the current literature. We therefore analyzed in vivo pharmacokinetics of these fleeces when used in the treatment of periprosthetic infections. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Gentamycin concentrations were measured in 19 consecutive patients with an acute periprosthetic infection. Each patient received 2-5 fleeces (130 mg gentamycin/fleece). RESULTS: Initially, the blood concentration increased to 3...

BACKGROUND: Despite the routine use of prophylactic systemic antibiotics, surgical-site infection continues to be associated with significant morbidity and cost after colorectal surgery. The gentamicin-collagen sponge, an implantable topical antibiotic agent, is approved for surgical implantation in 54 countries. Since 1985, more than 1 million patients have been treated with the sponges. METHODS: In a phase 3 trial, we randomly assigned 602 patients undergoing open or laparoscopically assisted colorectal surgery at 39 U...

Local versus systemic antibiotic delivery may be an effective strategy for treating musculoskeletal infections, especially when antibiotic-resistant bacteria are present. Lyophilized uncrosslinked, genipin crosslinked, and genipin crosslinked with poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) chitosan sponges were analyzed for their in vitro degradation rate, chemical crosslinking, antibiotic uptake, elution, biologic activity, and cytotoxicity. These evaluations were pursued to determine if crosslinking with genipin could be used to create a tailorable point of care loaded sponge for local infection control...

OBJECTIVES: Local antibiotic delivery is a viable and attractive option for preventing infection. Unfortunately, the current options are limited and often necessitate surgical removal. This study evaluates the ability of a biodegradable and biocompatible chitosan sponge to minimize infection by delivering local antibiotics within the wound. METHODS: A complex musculoskeletal wound was created on the hindlimb of goats and contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa (lux) or Staphylococcus aureus (lux) bacteria...

Prediction of wound healing and major amputation in patients with diabetic foot ulceration is clinically important to stratify risk and target interventions for limb salvage. No consensus exists as to which measure of peripheral artery disease (PAD) can best predict outcomes. To evaluate the prognostic utility of index PAD measures for the prediction of healing and/or major amputation among patients with active diabetic foot ulceration, two reviewers independently screened potential studies for inclusion. Two further reviewers independently extracted study data and performed an assessment of methodological quality using the Quality in Prognostic Studies instrument...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Impaired diabetes wound healing can often lead to serious complications and remains a major health concern due to the lack of effective therapeutic approaches. Compromised angiogenesis, disrupted growth factor and cytokine activity are all attributable to diabetic wound healing impairment. The skin-derived precursors (SKPs) have been shown to differentiate into vascular and nerve cells, both of which are crucial components for wound repair. Given their easy accessibility and multipotency, the SKPs were proposed as an ideal therapeutic candidate for diabetic wound healing...

OBJECTIVES: Sternal wound infections are serious postoperative complications that increase the length of hospital stay and healthcare costs. The benefit of implantable gentamicin-collagen sponges in reducing sternal wound infections has been questioned in a recent multicenter trial. We aimed to perform a comprehensive meta-analysis of studies assessing the efficacy of implantable gentamicin-collagen sponges in sternal wound infection prevention. METHODS: Multiple databases were screened for studies assessing the efficacy of implantable gentamicin-collagen sponges after heart surgery...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a feared complication in hip arthroplasty, especially following femoral neck fracture in the elderly, associated with substantially increased morbidity, mortality, and costs. Gentamicin-containing collagen sponges are widely used for prevention of SSIs, but their effectiveness in joint replacement surgery remains unclear. METHODS: We performed a multicenter, randomized trial between February 2011 and July 2013. Eligible patients with femoral neck fracture undergoing hemiarthroplasty were randomly assigned to receive either intravenous antimicrobial prophylaxis alone or with the addition of 2 gentamicin-containing collagen sponges into the hip joint perioperatively...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this pilot study was to determine the safety and potential benefit of adding a topical gentamicin-collagen sponge to standard of care (systemic antibiotic therapy plus standard diabetic wound management) for treating diabetic foot infections of moderate severity. METHODS: We randomized 56 patients with moderately infected diabetic foot ulcers in a 2:1 ratio to receive standard of care plus the gentamicin-collagen sponge (treatment group, n = 38) or standard of care only (control group, n = 18) for up to 28 days of treatment...

Biodegradable local antibiotic delivery systems have gained interest for prophylaxis and treatment of musculoskeletal infections. We studied the biodegradable materials Osteo- Set, DBX and Collagraft for local delivery of vancomycin and gentamicin in vitro. We determined the antimicrobial activity of vancomycin and gentamicin after mixing with each biodegradable material and determined the release of each antimicrobial from each material in an intermittent flow chamber. Antimicrobial activity was expressed as percent of antimicrobial loaded into each sample that was detected; antimicrobial release was expressed as concentration (microg/mL) after timed intervals of chamber flow, peak concentration, area under the curve and percent antimicrobial recovered...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a common type of healthcare-associated infection in gastrointestinal (GI) surgical procedures, which often has major consequences for patient recovery and increased healthcare costs due to prolonged hospital stay. This article provides an overview of the efficacy and safety of prophylactic application of resorbable gentamicin-containing collagen implants (GCI) in the prevention of SSI following high-risk GI surgical procedures. METHOD: Nine publications were identified using the PubMed online database and search terms 'gentamicin collagen implant' plus 'surgical site infection', 'wound infection' and 'gastrointestinal surgery'...

BACKGROUND: Several absorbable and nonabsorbable antibiotic carrier systems are available in the adjunctive surgical management of osteomyelitis of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. These carrier systems have significant limitations regarding which antibiotics can be successfully incorporated into the carrier vehicle. The calcium sulfate and hydroxyapatite Cerament Bone Void Filler is a biocompatible, absorbable ceramic bone void filler that can successfully deliver multiple heat-stable and heat-unstable antibiotics that have not been generally used before with antibiotic beads in treating musculoskeletal infections...

Open fractures often are associated with increased rates of infection and nonunion, multiple surgical procedures, and delayed return to preinjury activity. Antimicrobial bone graft substitutes used as an alternative to antibiotic cement beads and/or delayed autologous bone grafting may provide a useful adjunct in patients with open fractures. A stable, unicortical defect was created and contaminated with 30 microL of 5 x 10 colony-forming units/mL of Staphylococcus aureus in the proximal tibial metaphysis of Spanish goats...

The rates of elution of tobramycin in vitro were compared for polymethylmethacrylate beads impregnated with the powder form and an alternative biodegradable substance, sponge collagen. The impregnated polymethylmethacrylate beads initially had a lower zone of inhibition, but the rate of release was slow in comparison with that of the impregnated sponge collagen. The sponge collagen delivered a higher dose faster and with a shorter duration than the polymethylmethacrylate beads with the same antibiotic concentration in vitro, but the beads delivered a therapeutic concentration for longer periods...

Carriers used for the local delivery of antibacterial agents may be classified as nonbiodegradable or biodegradable. A major representative of the former category are the polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) beads often impregnated with gentamicin which have been commercially available for the last 2 decades. Examples of the latter category include the collagen-gentamicin sponge, apatite-wollastonite glass ceramic blocks, hydroxyapatite blocks, polylactide/polyglycolide implants and the polylactate polymers. All of the above systems release antibiotics at concentrations exceeding those of the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) for the most common pathogens of chronic osteomyelitis without releasing any antibiotic in the systemic circulation and without producing adverse effects...
