Mechanical Safety Study and Antibiotic-loaded Polymethylmethacrylate Spacers Threshold, Manufactured Intraoperatively, in Orthopaedic Surgery


Abstract:
The study performed the biomechanical testing of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) specimens with unreinforced progressive antibiotic loading, compared to samples reinforced with Kirschner wires, by subjecting these specimens to mechanical compression forces. A difference was observed in the yield of the reinforced specimens with Kirschner wires, in which an antibiotic concentration that exceeded the usual amount was used. In this antibiotic combination of vancomycin powder and liquid gentamicin, the spacer seemed to have a superior structure compared to using only the antibiotic in liquid form. These results are superior to the usually loaded specimens (not exceeding the threshold of 4 g of antibiotic per 40 g of cement), the maximum force recorded being of 20.98 kN and the minimum of 11.54 kN. The reinforced specimens indicated higher values of force, registering differences that varied between 10 kN and approximately 19 kN, thus considering that through the reinforcement with Kirschner wires, the biomechanical qualities of the cement spacers considerably improved.
