Comparisons in the literature of static and articulating spacers have shown average eradication rates of approximately 90% and 92%, respectively. 3 Therefore, we can conclude that static and articulating spacers are both effective for eradication of infection. The benefits of articulating spacers are prevention of soft-tissue contracture, promotion of range of motion, and facilitation of antibiotic delivery.
