COMBINATION OF GENTAMICIN AND VANCOMYCIN
VANCOGENX was the very first bone cement to be CE marked containing a combination of gentamicin and vancomycin. The synergistic behaviour of these two antibiotics makes this cement the best option  for challenging orthopaedic infections.
VANCOGENX™ uses special preparations and controlled processes to ensure an even distribution of fine antibiotics, resulting in bone cement with optimum strength and elution characteristics [2, 3].
