Abstract
There are a variety of protocols that are used in infected total joint arthroplasty. This book will outline and detail the best possible course of treatment and formulate custom algorithms for every possible case, based on current evidence. reviews of current concepts and "recipes" for the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (surgical and antibiotic) based on the type of implant, infection and the patient. The book will be 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.
