Although bone cement was invented for fixing implants to the bone, they can be used for osteomyelitis treatments as they can express high concentrations of antibiotics to the environment. There is still some argument about the expression rate and the kind of antibiotics that can be used in bone cements. In two staged revisions, antibiotic loaded cement is still golden standard for successful treatment. Because of the high post-operative infection rate in revisions, some authors advise routine antibiotic loaded cement for prophylaxis.
