Description:

The staging system of Cierny and Mader for osteomyelitis uses both the anatomy of the bone infection and the physiologic status of the host. This allows development of precise treatment guidelines to match the conditions of the infection. This system does not designate acute versus chronic infection, since large areas of necrotic tissue need to be removed regardless of duration of the infection.
