Nosocomial osteomyelitis is a complication that needs immediate treatment and can often require the removal of the metallic implant, increasing expenses and prolonging recovery by the patient [1].

The most common bacteria responsible for two-thirds of infection in orthopedic implant infection is Staphylococcus aureus in osteomyelitis and septic arthritis [2].
