Osteomyelitis cranii

From WikiLectures

Osteomyelitis cranii is an infection of the bone plate, most often occurring after surgery. Penetrating injuries to soft lbi covers with bone injuries also pose a great risk, and spontaneous transition in sinus infections is also possible.

Causing agents[edit | edit source]

Therapy[edit | edit source]

  • Osteomyelitis is very difficult to treat with ATB alone, usually requiring surgical revision with removal of the bone plate and excision of the infected bone.
  • We continue in 2-4 months of ATB treatment, cranioplasty (bone replacement newly created from polymeric material / Ti lattice) until the infection is completely cured.
