Gentamycin og Vancomycin baserte spasere for hofter, knær og skulder. Godt dokumentert og brukt ved flere sykehus i Norge.
Vancogenx-Space devices are the exclusive preformed spacers that bring together the extraordinary mechanical
and pharmacological characteristics of Tecres spacers and the efficacy of the Vancomycin-Gentamicin combination.
They are indicated for temporary artificial joint replacement when prosthetic joints require
removal due to sepsis.
The microbiological efficacy of Vancogenx-Space devices can be attributed to the
special production process developed by Tecres that increases the device’s
porosity without compromising its mechanical performance.(8)
This permits antibiotic release that is:
• sustained and high-dose
• superior to that achieved with theatre-made devices using antibiotic-loaded bone cement.
