#107: Periprosthetic Joint Infections in Pandemic Times
01 Jul 2020
Event details

COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways. Even though arthroplasty surgery is going back to a “new normal” several factors must be considered. 

In cooperation with PALACADEMY®, the learning and knowledge platform for bone and joint surgery by HERAEUS, we present a new episode of the Multi-Hub Live Event Series on “Periprosthetic Joint Infections in Pandemic Times. Focus on Risk Patients and Prevention”. We have put together an interdisciplinary team of four of the most experienced experts in the field of prevention and treatment of Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI) to discuss the best strategies for the current situation. Multidisciplinary, patient oriented concepts and PJI prevention matter more than ever. Evidence and experiences especially with dual antibiotic-loaded bone cement will be focus of the discussion.

Please check the “Top Resources” section at the bottom of this page for a detailed literature list and free articles.

I will learn to
  • Focus on multidisciplinary, patient-oriented concepts and PJI prevention as they matter more than ever in pandemic conditions
  • See in which patient groups bone cement with two antibiotics have shown to improve infection outcome
  • Understand why patients undergoing revision surgery as well as patients with multiple comorbidities are at high risk for periprosthetic joint infection
  • Consider the type of bone cement and a suitable antibiotic combination in order to achieve best release and microbiological efficacy
