Event details

Despite high standards and even though new concepts to prevent periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) are considered a key factor for successful arthroplasty, there’s no international consensus yet. Let’s take a deeper look at the practice of PJI prevention in specific countries.

In cooperation with PALACADEMY®, the learning and knowledge platform for bone and joint surgery by Heraeus Medical, we present a multi-hub event which gives insights from the Dutch experience. Experts from the Netherlands discuss “Current Concepts of Infection Prevention in Arthroplasty Patients”. By sharing their clinical practice, presenting scientific data and discussing the state of the art, our experts cover questions like: How can risk for infection be defined? Do high risk patients need special treatment? Which local preventive measures are promising? How should systemic antibiotics be used for prevention? What is the role of dual antibiotic-loaded bone cements?
