Short summary
Chronic osteomyelitis is a bone infection and was treated with a combination of antibiotics and two surgeries. With the introduction of the biomaterial S53P4 bioactive glass, these infections can be treated with antibiotics and one surgery. This study shows 85 % success in the treatment of these bone infections. Together with the fundamentally different antibacterial mechanisms without antibiotic resistance, S53P4 bioactive glass is recommendable for the treatment of these infections.
