myAO Clinical Roundup on Periprosthetic Joint Infections (PJI)
How should a clinician tackle the management and treatment of aPeriprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI)? An individualized approach must be developed for each patient, one that integrates appropriatesurgical interventionandantimicrobial strategies.
The diagnosis and treatment of PJI can be complex and require the collaboration of a multidisciplinary health care team. Knowing and managing the risks factors that predispose arthroplasty patients to PJI can go a long way in minimizing the chances for infection, as well as implementing improvedinfection control proceduresandhygiene protocol adherence. But if a PJI does take hold, evidence-based algorithms and international recommendations for treatment offer great guidance towards resolving the problem.
See this articlefor detailed information on AO's individualized approach to treating PJI.
