    A 67-year-old male presented with sternal dehiscence following open cardiac surgery. Extensive debridement and attempted closure failed, and the wound had since been managed with vacuum-assisted closure therapy, with little progress. We treated him with antibiotic-loaded bone cement to repair the wound defect. After 3 weeks, the wound healed with excellent result. To our knowledge, this is the first report of antibiotic-loaded bone cement for deep sternal wound infection. © Crown copyright 2021.
