BACKGROUND: Osteomyelitis, followed by trauma or inflammation relates to a surgical procedure and is the concept caused by pyogenic bacteria in the bone marrow and bone. Treatment is difficult because management usually relies on a multidisciplinary approach. Up to date, there is no study in the literature investigating the effect of trauma and the causative microorganism on the duration of treatment in chronic osteomyelitis.
