To combat acute and chronic osteomyelitis, particularly implant-associated osteomyelitis, local antibiotic delivery from a biodegradable carrier is favorable over systemic antibiotic treatment. Not only can this help to achieve high local concentration over a desired therapeutic window, but it can also fill the void space left after surgical debridement.This mini review will briefly consider the advantages and disadvantages of synthetic polymer-based materials, ceramics, and calcium-based materials such as calcium phosphate (CP), calcium sulphate (CS), and bioglass, which can be used as a local antibiotic carrier as well as a bone void filler.
