Summary of "Age Alone is Not a Risk Factor for Periprosthetic Joint Infection."

It is not known whether age alone or the increased comorbidities in the older patients are responsible for the higher rate of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) in the older patients. The hypothesis of this study was that age alone is not a risk factor for PJI after total joint arthroplasty.
