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
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...
This is an open-labelled two-arm pilot comparative prospective study. All the subjects will undergo image assessment in the two stages of exchange arthroplasty surgery. At the first stage,...
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 two-stage protocol is gold standard in terms of infection control treating prosthetic joint infections of total hip and total knee arthroplasty. The antibiotic pause for diagnostic rea...
There has been a debate regarding the outcomes of 2-stage revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) when debridement, antibiotics, irrigation, and implant retention (DAIR) had been carried out previously...
Mycobacterium tuberculosis periprosthetic joint infection (TBPJI) is a rare complication of hip/knee joint arthroplasty. The outcomes of hip/knee TBPJI treatment are still unreported. The objective of...
Approximately 340,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the USA and UK. Around 1% of patients who have had knee replacement develop deep infection around the prosthesis: periprosthetic knee...
Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) of the knee with concurrent disruption of the extensor mechanism is a devastating complication. Historically, knees with such complications have been salvaged with...
Although two-stage exchange arthroplasty is considered a treatment of choice for chronic features of fungal PJI (periprosthetic joint infection), there is no consensus for local use of antifungal agen...
The stage in the first meiotic prophase, following ZYGOTENE STAGE, when CROSSING OVER between homologous CHROMOSOMES begins.
The process of TOOTH formation. It is divided into several stages including: the dental lamina stage, the bud stage, the cap stage, and the bell stage. Odontogenesis includes the production of tooth enamel (AMELOGENESIS), dentin (DENTINOGENESIS), and dental cementum (CEMENTOGENESIS).
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.
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.
The earliest developmental stage of a fertilized ovum (ZYGOTE) during which there are several mitotic divisions within the ZONA PELLUCIDA. Each cleavage or segmentation yields two BLASTOMERES of about half size of the parent cell. This cleavage stage generally covers the period up to 16-cell MORULA.
