Short summary
Antibiotics are frequently used in bone cement during joint replacements or treatment of bone and joint infections. Amikacin is rarely used in bone cement, particularly the liquid formulation. We describe a series of patients in which liquid amikacin was incorporated into bone cement. We did not observe the occurrence of adverse drug reactions definitively attributed to its use. All patients had favorable outcomes.
