Summary of "Risk factors for periprosthetic joint infection after total knee arthroplasty."

Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) is the most serious and feared complication in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and can have catastrophic consequences. The number of total knee arthroplasties is increasing, so infections could also be greater in the future. The aim of this study is to identify the most relevant risk factors associated with infection after a total knee arthroplasty.
