Infection after orthopaedic oncology surgery is a relatively frequent complication. Infection rate ranges in the literature between 3.7% and 19.9%, increasing up to 47% after pelvic resection and reconstruction. It represents a challenging topic when occurring in oncologic patients because of the delay of systemic and local treatments, influencing prognosis. Infection is a major concern in terms of both prevention and treatment. The aim of our review was to analyze data reported in the literature about strategies and new materials for infection prevention in musculoskeletal oncology surgery.
