About this book

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.
