Defensive Antibacterial Coating (DAC ® ) for prevention of infection in ACL reconstruction: a feasibility study

SUMMARY Defensive Antibacterial Coating (DAC) is a hydrogel, Conformité Européene (CE)-marked medical device, intended to be used as a disposable, quickly bioresorbable antibacterial coating for implants. The present feasibility study investigated the application of DAC on the grafts, in addition to IV prophylaxis, during anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
