Bone Infection

OSTEOMIELITIS

Bone tissue has a hard structure and is a living tissue thanks to the cells in this hard structure. Bone tissue is very resistant to infection. In order for a bone to become inflamed, there must be a problem in the vitality of the bone.

There are two ways microorganisms can settle in a bone. The first is that microorganisms in the focus of infection in another part of our body reach the bone through the blood and cause bone infection. We often encounter such infections in children who have frequent urinary tract or throat infections. Symptoms of this infection include fever, inability to bear weight on the leg, and redness of the leg. MRI imaging may be required for diagnosis, as the X-ray film is normal in the early period. In some cases, these lesions in the bone can be confused with tumors. According to the results of the culture to be taken from the bone, the infection can be treated with the use of appropriate and long-term antibiotics after the bone is surgically cleaned.

The second type of infection is bone infection, which is mostly seen in adults. Such infections either occur as a result of the complete settlement of the microorganism in the bone as a result of improper treatment of the bone infection that develops in childhood, or it develops as a result of the damage of the bone that has lost its vitality after the fractures and the direct settlement of the bacteria in the bone. The sign of this infection is usually seen in the form of bone pain. As the infection progresses, it can also cause discharge on the skin. These discharges stop periodically in patients who are not treated appropriately. However, when the patient's body resistance decreases, swelling around the bone and then the discharge on the skin begin again. Many patients have struggled with this ailment for years. There are even rumors among the people that this disease will end in the grave.

STEOMYELIT TREATMENT

Today, bone infections are diseases that can be treated contrary to what is known. This treatment process is long. Patients and doctors need to be patient. In the treatment, the infected bone tissue is cleaned by surgery, and culture is done in this area to understand the type of bacteria. An antibiotic bone cement is placed in and around the bone. According to the culture results, antibiotic treatment of the patient is arranged by the infectious diseases specialist. The treatment process of the patient is followed by blood tests.

In some cases, the bone in the infected part is completely removed due to poor vitality. Later, the extremity (limb) is treated by bone lengthening with the method called bone transport.

Treatment of bone infection (osteomyelitis) is a process that requires patience for the patient and the doctor. At the end of this process, most of the patients regain their health. The probability of recurrence of the disease is very low.
