Musculosketal infections are potentially devastating for the patient,
his family and the health care services, as they may lead to functional
impairment, long lasting disability, or even permanent handicap.
This problem may also have socioeconomic implications. Infection
commonly results in prolonged use of antibiotics, multiple operations,
complications, extended rehabilitation and long lasting followup
visits with additional costs for the health care provider.
