    Role of Rifampin for Treatment
    of Orthopedic Implant-related Staphylococcal
    Infections: A Randomized Controlled Trial

    Orthopaedic
    devices are frequently infected.
    They are associated with both high morbidity
    and cost. Based
    on animal model, a double-blind randomised placebo
    controlled clinical trial was conducted from 1992
    through 1997 to assess the value of rifampin
    containing combination antibody therapy for patients
    with a stable orthopedic implant infected with
    staphylococci.

         

    The
    clinical trial confirmed that with stable implants
    and short-term staphylococcal infections treated
    with initial debridement and long-term rifampin
    containing combination antibiotic therapy can be
    cured of their infection without removal of the
    device.
