The complexities that come with managing infected revisions can be unpredictable, especially after multiple revisions. With this in mind, it is important for surgeons to have options when they tackle these difficult cases where patients present different anatomies and varying levels of bone deficiencies.
Throughout the field of orthopaedics, there is a trend moving toward preserving as much of the patient’s natural anatomy as possible. Likewise, having access to a wide range of bone conserving implants affords the surgeon the opportunity to treat each patient with respect to anatomical preservation.
