A 2-step exchange consists in explantation of the prosthesis and implementation of a spacer at the first stage, and reimplantation of a new prosthesis in a second stage. Patients with late prosthetic joint infection are at risk for superinfection at the time of reimplantation.
The aim is to determine the microbiological epidemiology in patients experiencing failure following reimplantation to establish, based on the drug susceptibilities, which cement could be the most active.

One-stage exchange arthroplasty in the management of periprosthetic joint infection was introduced at our institution. The purpose of this study was to analyze the risk factors of failure after peripr...
Definition of Successful Infection Management and Guidelines for Reporting of Outcomes After Surgical Treatment of Periprosthetic Joint Infection: From the Workgroup of the Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS).
Autologous bone graft reimplantation remains the standard treatment after decompressive hemicraniectomy. Unfortunately, some patients present with signs of bone resorption without any visible signs of...
What Metrics Can Be Used to Determine the Optimal Timing of Reimplantation in Patients Who Have Undergone Resection Arthroplasty as Part of a Two-Stage Exchange for Infected Total Ankle Arthroplasty (TAA)?
There is no conclusive data regarding what metrics can be used in order to determine the optimal timing of reimplantation for an infected TAA. We recommend that reimplantation is performed when there ...
To evaluate the effect of oral antimicrobial suppression on the outcome of streptococcal periprosthetic joint infection (PJI).

Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
