about

Management of Periprosthetic Joint Infections (PJIs): Management of PJIs discusses periprosthetic joint infection (PJI), a fairly rare occurrence that is nonetheless one of the most serious complications in joint replacement surgery. Intricate interactions between the pathogen, the host, and the implant can result in PJIs which are not only physically devastating for the patient, but also financially crippling for health authorities and insurance companies.

Actions taken to minimize the risk of PJIs can be extremely challenging for the orthopaedic community. Consequently, new research, which is detailed in this comprehensive book, is being undertaken to minimize and manage these challenging infections.

  • Provides essential background knowledge on the mechanisms and identification of PJIs
  • Dedicated chapters focus on the complex, but vital eccentricities between PJIs in different areas of the body
  • Contains contributions from a mixture of clinical and academic experts in the field, thus ensuring balanced coverage
