#2211: Prevention of Periprosthetic Joint Infection with Bone Cement in Italy
22 Nov 2021
Event details

Can the success of arthroplasty procedures be further improved? New concepts to prevent periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) are considered promising, even if there’s no international consensus yet. Let’s take a deeper look by connecting international evidence with local experiences at the practice of PJI prevention.

In cooperation with PALACADEMY®, the learning and knowledge platform for bone and joint surgery by Heraeus Medical, we present a multi-hub event which looks at Prevention of Periprosthetic Joint Infection with bone cement in Italy. Experts from Italy raise the question: What could be improved? Supported by international experts sharing their own data in short guest lectures, the Italian faculty discusses the state of the art and experiences in their own clinical practice.

What is the situation in Italy? How can risk for infection be defined? Which patients need special consideration? How many revisions are truly aseptic? What is the role of dual antibiotic-loaded bone cements? 

Please note that the event will be held in Italian language.

Il successo delle procedure di artroplastica può essere ulteriormente migliorato? Nuovi concetti per prevenire le infezioni articolari periprotesiche (PJI) sono considerati promettenti, anche se non c'è ancora un consenso internazionale. Diamo uno sguardo più approfondito confrontando le esperienze internazionali con quelle locali nella prevenzione delle PJI.

In collaborazione con PALACADEMY®, la piattaforma di apprendimento e conoscenza per la chirurgia ossea e articolare di Heraeus Medical, presentiamo un evento multi-hub che esamina la prevenzione dell'infezione articolare periprotesica con cemento osseo in Italia. Gli esperti dall'Italia si chiedono: cosa potrebbe essere migliorato? Supportata da esperti internazionali che condividono i propri dati in brevi conferenze, la faculty italiana discute lo stato dell'arte e le esperienze nella propria pratica clinica.

Qual è la situazione in Italia? Come si può definire il rischio di infezione? Quali pazienti necessitano di una considerazione speciale? Quante revisioni sono veramente asettiche? Qual è il ruolo dei cementi ossei a doppio carico di antibiotici?

Si ricorda che l'evento si terrà in lingua italiana.
