ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a study that determines the influence of antibiotic on the porosity, and fatigue life of six contemporary bone cements. Researcher in the study used diametral tension to evaluate both single cycle and fatigue strength. The study findings highlight that both hand-blending and open hand-mixing of antibiotics at the time of surgery should be avoided.
