About this book

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.

Reviews

“This book succinctly directs the reader through a stepwise process of diagnosing and subsequently treating the infected total knee replacement arthroplasty … . Medical students, residents, and researchers will find this book useful. ... This would be a worthwhile addition to the academic medical library frequented by medical students, residents, and research scientists who are interested in prosthetic knee joint infection and still reference print books.” (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018)
