Summary of "Characteristics and Outcome of Twenty-Nine Implant-Related Infections of the Hand and Fingers: Results from a Twelve-Year Observational Study."

Implant-related infections in hand surgery are dreaded complications, potentially leading to loss of finger joint function or amputation. Knowledge about the clinical presentation and treatment concepts of these infections is limited. The aim of this study is to present a consecutive series of patients with implant-related infections of the finger joints and wrist.
