Diabetic foot operation

Who can guess what those white teeth-like structures are inside the wound?⬇️.This is a diabetic foot operation. The patient had irrigation and debridement with wide excision of all infected soft tissue and bone. The wound was then filled with antibiotic beads. Antibiotic beads have gained wide acceptance in orthopedics in the treatment of a variety of skeletal infections due to their ability to provide high concentrations of antibiotic at the site of infection while avoiding the complications associated with systemic toxicity
