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...
We report the successful treatment of a Nocardia cyriacigeorgica periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) that occurred at the site of a total knee arthroplasty. To our knowledge, this organism has not pr...
Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a challenging complication for surgeons and patients alike. Although two-stage revision arthroplasty remains the...
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...
Reduction of pathogens in the knee joint by removal of infected periprosthetic soft tissue, irrigation and modular implant exchange of the total knee arthroplasty (TKA) to eliminate the infection and ...
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.
