The aim of the present paper was to determine (1) the incidence of failure (defined as the persistence or the recurrence of the infection), (2) the incidence of prosthesis (or even limb) loss (defined as the final need for an arthrodesis, resection arthroplasty or amputation) and (3) what factors could influence the failure in patients treated with a two-stage reimplantation for periprosthetic knee infections caused by resistant bacteria.

Abstract

The aim of the present paper was to determine (1) the incidence of failure (defined as the persistence or the recurrence of the infection), (2) the incidence of prosthesis (or even limb) loss (defined as the final need for an arthrodesis, resection arthroplasty or amputation) and (3) what factors could influence the failure in patients treated with a two-stage reimplantation for periprosthetic knee infections caused by resistant bacteria.
