NEW YORK — Male gender, a diagnosis of diabetes and having native septic arthritis are factors that put patients with septic arthritis who undergo total joint arthroplasty at greater risk for developing prosthetic joint infection, a presenter said.
At the Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS) Annual Open Scientific Meeting, Timothy L. Tan, MD, presented results of a retrospective study of patients who underwent 233 TJA procedures (124 total hip arthroplasties; 109 total knee arthroplasties) at four institutions and developed prosthetic joint infection (PJI).
