Percutaneous osseointegrated prosthetics are becoming available for those with limb loss as an alternative to prosthetic socket technology.The percutaneous nature makes them susceptible to biofilm-related infection. We hypothesized that antimicrobial blue light (aBL) can manage biofilm burden and we explored the efficacy of oregano oil and CZ (anti-biofilm compound). Multi-day applications were tested against Staph aureus biofilms.
