Short summary
We compared the outcome of bioactive glass S53P4 as bone substitute versus autologous bone grafts for filling defects in patients with infected non-union. Our comparison of the outcomes revealed no significant differences between the groups with respect to recurrence of infection, bone healing, full weight bearing, or complications in general. Our results are promising. BAG seems to be an appropriate bone substitute. Further studies with larger numbers of patients are required.
