Prosthetic Joint Infections

Prosthetic joint infections (PJI) represent a not frequent (1-2%) but severe complication of arthroplasty. In relation to the time of onset after surgery, PJI are classified as “early”, in the first 3 months, “delayed”, between 3 months and 2 years or “late”, more than 2 years after surgery. PJI remain a diagnostic challenge and a hard management for the clinician. For these reasons the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has recently published guidelines to perform a correct diagnosis. The gold standard is represented by microbiological identification of the pathogen with cultures of specimens obtained during arthrocentesis, tissue biopsy or surgery. Clinical symptoms and signs can only suggest a diagnosis. Journal of Medical Diagnostic Methods is one of the top online publishing journals for research from the field of Prosthetic Joint Infections. The open access articles published in this scholarly journal are reviewed by at least two reviewers of the associated fields. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, short communications, etc and emphasizes theoretical and experimental work. To ensure high quality articles, both editors and reviewers actively participate in the peer review process and help in completing the review process within 21 days. As an important educational platform the journal provides scientists and researchers access to the newest trends and research outlooks.
