Comparative Effectiveness and Cost-Benefit Analysis of Vancomycin Powder in High Risk Spine Surgery Patients
http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01566422?term=spine&rank=94

Objective: In this proposal the investigators will prospectively randomize patients undergoing posterior spinal stabilization for traumatic injuries into either receiving vancomycin powder into the surgical site (treatment) versus not receiving vancomycin powder (control) and subsequently follow infection rate, complications, and cost of care. The investigator's hypothesis is that i) vancomycin powder will decrease infection rates ii) have no systemic toxicity iii) and be a cost saving advancement in the safety of delivering spine surgical care.

Design: Allocation: Randomized Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
