AbstractWe presented a simple and economic method of preparing articulating antibiotic-loaded cement spacers for treatment of infection after total knee arthroplasty. From 1996 to 2004, 28 infected total knee arthroplasties were treated with 2-stage reimplantation. Static spacers were used in 7 knees, and articulating spacers were used in 21 knees. A minimum of 2 years' follow-up after final treatment was evaluated. In the static group, 1 (14%) knee had recurrence of infection. In the articulating group, 2 (9%) knees had recurrence of infection with the original organism. Patients receiving articulating spacer had better range of motion, better knee score, and less bone loss than patients with static spacer. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
