There are a variety of protocols that are used in infected total joint arthroplasty. This book outlines and details the best possible course of treatment and formulate custom algorithms for every possible case, based on current evidence. It reviews current concepts and "recipes" for the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (surgical and antibiotic) based on the type of implant, infection and the patient.
This book is an essential resource on infected total joint arthroplasty, containing a series of logical and highly detailed instructions that will serve to educate orthopedic surgeons operating in this field on the best approaches, according to detailed and careful research conducted over the last decade.
The basis of the approach is the 10-year-follow-up of currently 100+ patients diagnosed and treated always according to the same algorithm
Logical presentation of evidence based approach to each algorithm
Contains concise instructions on the best way to proceed during infected total joint arthroplasty
