Short summary
The antibiotic bead pouch is a useful technique for temporary soft tissue coverage. After the introduction of negative wound pressure therapy, it has fallen into oblivion. However, the technique has several advantages, which are highlighted in the present review article. After debridement, the antibiotic beads deliver high dosages of antibiotics suitable for bone cements. This enables a sterile wound, which might help to avoid either infection or progress of infection.
