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 [1] 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].
