For patients undergoing 2-stage exchange for the treatment of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following total knee arthroplasty, the long-term risk of reinfection and mechanical failure and long-term clinical outcomes are not well known. The purpose of our study was to determine the long-term clinical results of 2-stage exchange for PJI following total knee arthroplasty.

Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following total knee arthroplasty is a growing concern, as the demand for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) expands annually. Although 2-stage revision is considered t...
In a two-stage exchange protocol for prosthetic joint infection (PJI), bacteria surviving over the antibiotic-loaded cement spacers may cause the persistence of infection with renewed clinical symptom...
There is no consensus on the appropriate marker to use when deciding to perform reimplantation after two-stage exchange arthroplasty for periprosthetic joint infection (PJI).
This retrospective study aims to improve the diagnosis of PJI as well as to identify microorganisms causing periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) and the drug-resistant spectrum
Chronic infection after total joint arthroplasty generally requires implant exchange. Two stage exchange is considered as the gold standard procedure. However, some authors suggest that on...
The results found in the literature do not allow to define objectively the indications respective for a one-step or a two-step exchange of prosthetic joint. Some criteria could help to dec...
Hip replacement surgery is common, with over 60,000 cases in Canada annually. After hip replacement, about 1-2% patients develop a deep infection in their artificial hip implant, called a ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an undirected synovial biopsy technique has the same accuracy in detecting periprosthetic joint infection in the knee as an arthroscopic a...
Fractures around joint replacement prosthetics or implants. They can occur intraoperatively or postoperatively.
Infection of animals, including fish and man, with a developmental stage of Diphyllobothrium. This stage has recently been referred to as a plerocercoid but the name sparganum has persisted. Therefore, infection of fish or other animals with the plerocercoid larvae is sparganosis. Fish-eating mammals, including man, are the final hosts.
A genus of tapeworm, containing several species, found as adults in birds and mammals. The larvae or cysticercoid stage develop in invertebrates. Human infection has been reported and is probably acquired from eating inadequately cooked meat of animals infected with the second larval stage known as the tetrahythridium.
