Wound Infections in High-Risk Orthopaedic Patients

Perprosthetic infection is the most common complication and basic issue in replacement arthroplasty, “infections associated with total hip replacement are a devastating complication with far reaching consequences both for patients and forhealth care system”. Kuper M. and Rosenstein A. characterized the costs as “mind-boggling”, while Rezapoor M. and Parvizi J. predict that in 2015 the U.S. is going to lose 1 billion US dollars to periprosthetic infections. The authors also note that the lethality associated with periprosthetic infections is higher than that of some cancers.
