A periprosthetic joint infection occurs when bacteria or other foreign organisms enter a wound during or at any point following joint replacement surgery, sometimes even years after surgery. An infection can cause the joint to be painful or cause the implant to loosen, sometimes resulting in the need for revision surgery (Science Daily). Written by an author and editor team principally from Pennsylvania, USA, this practical guide offers advice on the management of surgical site infections following orthopaedic procedures. Divided into four sections, the book begins with an introduction to the basics of infection. The following sections discuss prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The section on diagnosis includes the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Clinical Practice Guidelines. Editor, Javad Parvizi, was vice chair of the work group for The Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infections of the Hip and Knee Guideline and Evidence Report, adopted by the AAOS in 2010.
