Every surgical stage is critical in treatment of periprosthetic hip infection

Orthopaedics Today Europe, July 2016

Some orthopaedic hip arthroplasty surgeons in Europe are now performing more one-stage revision procedures to treat periprosthetic hip infections. Others, however, remain committed to two-stage revisions as the best approach to eradicate the infection, provide patients with better hip function and greatly reduce the chances of re-infection.

“We feel this is a thorny question, ‘Should you do one stage or two stages?’ There are no great data out there,” Jonathan R. Howell, MBBS, MSc, FRCS (Tr&Orh), of Exeter, United Kingdom, told Orthopaedics Today Europe.
