A clinical investigation into a new bone void filler is giving first data on systemic and local exposure to the anti-infective substance after implantation.


A total of 20 patients with post-traumatic/post-operative bone infections were enrolled in this open-label, prospective study. After radical surgical debridement, the bone cavity was filled with this material. The 21-day hospitalisation phase included determination of gentamicin concentrations in plasma, urine and wound exudate, assessment of wound healing, infection parameters, implant resorption, laboratory parameters, and adverse event monitoring. The follow-up period was six months.

Osteochondrosis juvenilis is caused by a dysfunction of endochondral ossification. Several epiphyses and apophyses can be affected, but osteochondrosis juvenilis of the medial malleolus has not been reported. We describe a 12-year-old boy with bilateral pes planovalgus who was affected by this condition. Conservative management was successful. The presentation, aetiology and treatment are described and the importance of including it in the differential diagnosis is discussed.
