10 Jun 2022 The bone cement and antibiotics are needed.
The traumatologists of the Dnipro hospital use a complicated technique to treat severe limb injuries and restore broken bones. For this process, doctors use the PMMA bone cement and two antibiotics in a powder form: Gentamycin and Tobramycin.
There are no such antibiotics in powder form in Ukraine, unfortunately. And it‘s tough to find the bone cement. One of the antibiotic bone cement manufacturers is Stryker, and we’re currently trying to reach them.
4 Jul 2022 We handed the bone cement to doctor
We’ve handed the “special medicine” today. The bone cement with antibiotics for the traumatology department in Dnipro hospital!
Now traumatologists can use unique techniques to treat severe limb injuries and restore broken bones.
Special thanks to our teammate Artem Kornilov for finding and delivering it from the US.
