Post-osteomyelitis Reconstruction



It is arguable that bone sepsis in children, after malignant tumours, leaves the most debilitating long-term consequences. Every Orthopaedic surgeon dealing with this condition needs to be up to date with both medical and surgical treatment as this can minimise the late sequelae. This ICL covers the latest evidence on how and when to use antibiotics and how best to deal with the two most common after-effects of severe bone infection – sequestration of necrotic bone and deformity after septic physeal arrest. In addition, the case-based discussions will cover additional subjects around the topic including salvaging the destroyed hip after neonatal septic arthritis and orthopaedic sequelae of meningococcal septicaemia.

Aims & Objectives

  • To consider the latest evidence on the role and mode of delivery of antibiotics in the treatment of chronic osteomyelitis.
  • To learn strategies for treating complications of bone sepsis in children.
Target audience
General Orthopaedic and Paediatric Orthopaedic surgeons dealing with bone infection in children.
