Abstract

A technique is described for intraoperative fabrication of an antibiotic-impregnated temporary prosthesis using a rod pin as an endoskeleton. The technique has the advantage of the availability of numerous rod lengths and diameters, which allows the surgeon to produce a custom component with a wide range of lengths and offsets. The technique has been used successfully in many cases over a 5-year period.
