Abstract
Histological evaluation of the periprosthetic soft and osseous tissues is an important analytical tool. Its standardization is essential to generate accurate and reproducible data which allow comparisons for academic institutions, arthroplasty registries, and government regulatory agencies worldwide. It is also part of multidisciplinary evaluation of orthopedic implant failures and provides valuable information to be integrated with the clinical data, allergological tests, radiological exams, microbiological analysis, and biomechanical assessment of the implant wear.

Abstract
This book is structured in a way that guides the reader from prevention through to diagnosis and then treatment of infection following total knee arthroplasty, in each case providing state of the art information on available techniques and procedures. The section on the crucial preventive measures include guidance on preoperative optimization and skin preparation, antibiotic prophylaxis, and preoperative microbiological screening. All relevant aspects of diagnosis of infection are considered in detail, and the treatment-related section includes chapters on antibiotic suppression, arthroscopic lavage, open debridement with polyethylene exchange, one- and two-stage revision arthroplasty, and knee arthrodesis as a salvage procedure. Readers will also find clear instruction on how to proceed when all attempts to eradicate infection fail. In reflecting the latest knowledge and practice in this rapidly advancing field, the book will be an asset to all who are involved in the care of these patients.

Abstract
Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) is among the most serious complications in the field of endoprosthetics. The number of PJIs is increasing worldwide and poses a real interdisciplinary challenge for everyone involved. For the patient concerned, it is necessary to promptly work out an adequate therapy solution to fight off the infection. Both the clinical experience of the surgeon and the proper diagnostic processes are prerequisite for the reliable detection and identification of an infection. The microbiologist is responsible for identifying the causative germs by screening the patient's synovial fluid and tissue samples. Based on the findings and subsequent resistance testing, the infectious disease specialist can recommend the appropriate antibiotic therapy. Furthermore, the clinical pharmacist is consulted regularly throughout the therapy to discuss the risk of potential drug interactions. The surgeon will proceed with the revision surgery, following defined algorithms. Adequate radical debridement of infected and necrotic surrounding tissue is the most important step towards a successful cure of the infection. Accompanying the surgery, anti-infective agents are given systemically and locally. While systemic application of anti-infectives mainly reduces the number of haematogenic-spreading planktonic germs, local application immediately forms a colonization barrier and protects the implant from sessile biofilm formation. Concurrently, antibiotics are actively released from the implant, resulting in local germ reduction. Thus, local agents are embedded in the concept of surgical PJI treatment as a reliable adjuvant measure and they sustainably support the successful outcome. In one-stage procedures, local agents are released from specialized antibiotic-loaded bone cements, while in two- or multi-stage procedures, local agents are released from corresponding temporary spacers (interim prostheses). Even from an economic standpoint, the combination of systemic and local agent application is meaningful. Furthermore, there are some interesting trends towards the coating of metallic implants to protect against biofilm formation on the implant surface. On the basis of their personal experience, specialists from all over the world present, explain and discuss preventive approaches, appropriate diagnostic strategies for detection, reproducible effective surgical treatments as well as the economic impact of PJI. The reader can use this book as a solid platform for comparing their own approach to PJI treatment with the specialists' recommendations.áá.

Abstract
This book provides a state-of-the-art, worldwide overview of treatment options available for periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). It highlights areas where tremendous progress has been made over the past few years, looking at current evidence, projecting a way forward, and discussing key topics where ongoing research is needed and could potentially have a huge impact on the field. In addition to familiarising readers with effective diagnostics and treatment strategies, factors such as socioeconomics and associated morbidity are also examined in relation to this increasingly common condition. Periprosthetic Joint Infections: Changing Paradigms includes expert guidance based on the best available evidence and practice that can be applied in even the most difficult infection cases. To create this keystone resource for the orthopaedic community, the editors have brought together prominent experts from Europe and the US to give an international, authoritative perspective on this important topic. This book is an essential guide for specialists who deal with challenging cases of PJI in clinical practice or researchers who are seeking a reference point to undertake further studies in this growing area.
