Title:
Treatment of a chronic recurrent fistulized tibial osteomyelitis: administration of a novel antibiotic-loaded bone substitute combined with a pedicular muscle flap sealing. 
Abstract:
Persistent osteomyelitis is a severe and challenging problem in bone surgery. We describe a surgical intervention in a young adult which combines a bone debridement process, a plastic muscle flap sealing and the administration of a novel bone substitution material with anti-infective properties. After 1 year, the patient showed no signs or symptoms of a reoccurrence of infection with full load capacity of the treated leg.
