Abstract

Fifty-four patients with chronic osteomyelitis of the long bones were treated at Gyeong-Sang National University Hospital between 1985 and 1993 using the cement bead technique. We studied the results of thirty-one patients who were followed up for 3 years or more. The average duration of follow-up was 4 years and 2 months (range: 3 to 7 years). All of the patients were treated by a two-stage operation; primary saucerization with implantation of antibiotic-impregnated polymethylmethacrylate beads and secondary bone grafts. The most recent follow-up examinations and analyses revealed that 17 patients (55%) were completely free of infection. Ten patients (32%) required repeated procedures of curettage and/or bone grafting. Amputations were performed on 4 patients.
