Abstract Antibiotics are significant components for the treatment and prevention of biomaterial-associated infections. To serve this purpose, various biologically degradable polymeric biomaterials have been investigated with an aim to ensure local release of antibiotics. Controlled-release polymeric implants have a potential to reach high concentration of local antibiotics. Infections continue to spread in all fields of medicine related to the implantation of biomaterials. The most frequent bacteria are S.aureus, coagulase-negative staphylococci and other agents of nosocomial infections.
