Open fractures are known to be high risk for infection, even when treated with thorough debridement, stabilization, and appropriate systemic antibiotic therapy. Infection rates can be divided on the basis of Gustilo-Anderson fracture type-1, although there is variation in the literature, with rates of 0% to 6% for type-I fractures, rates of 2% to 6% for type-II fractures, and rates of 5% to 50% for type-III fractures Systemic antibiotics substantially lower infection rates in open fractures. Wound cavities are avascular; therefore, systemically administered antibiotics only achieve low concentrations in the fluids that collect in the cavity The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of local wound cavity installation of Vancomycin in conjunction with systemic antibiotics, to lower the prevalence of infection in patients with open fractures. This study suggests that local installation of Vancomycin administration as an adjunct to systemic antibiotics may be effective in lowering infection rates in open fractures; further research with higher-level research designs is needed.
