Title:
[Extracorporeal high hydrostatic pressure as a new technology for the disinfection of infected bone specimens]] 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Allogeneic bone transplantation is at risk of infection, and established disinfection methods typically compromise bone quality. High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) is well established for disinfection in food technology, and also it does protect biomechanical and biological properties of bone. This study is the first investigation of HHP regarding disinfection of bone biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bone biopsies of 34 patients with chronic infections were subjected to HHP and assessed...    »
