• The implantation of joint endoprostheses (arthroplasty) is associated with an increased risk for infection. (egms.de)
  • The presented report addresses the questions regarding the medical effectiveness, the cost-effectiveness as well as the ethical, social and legal aspects related to the use of interventions to prevent infections after knee arthroplasty. (egms.de)
  • The analysis includes publications which describe and/or evaluate clinical data from randomized controlled trials (RCT), systematic reviews of RCT, registers of endoprostheses or databases concerning interventions to prevent infections after knee arthroplasty. (egms.de)
  • The conducted literature search also aims to identify health-economic studies and publications dealing explicitly with ethical, social or legal aspects in the use of interventions to prevent infections after knee arthroplasty. (egms.de)
  • The cost-effectiveness of different interventions to prevent infections in knee arthroplasty remains unclear. (egms.de)
  • There are no signs for concern regarding any ethical, social and/or legal consequences in the use of interventions to prevent infections in knee arthroplasty. (egms.de)
  • Many concepts have been devised for the treatment of late periprosthetic infections of total hip prostheses. (medsci.org)
  • The fact that comparable rates of success can be achieved with different treatment regimens emphasises the importance of surgical removal of all foreign materials and the radical debridement of all infected and ischaemic tissues and the contribution of these crucial procedures to the successful treatment of late periprosthetic infections. (medsci.org)
  • There is increasing evidence to support the measurement of specific biomarkers in serum and/or synovial fluid of patients with suspected periprosthetic joint infections. (ox.ac.uk)
  • RESULTS: Computed tomographic scan follow-up at 6 months from surgery showed no evidence of recurrent infection. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. (bioportfolio.com)
  • A two-stage revision with a temporary antibiotic-impregnated cement spacer and a cemented prosthesis appears to be the most preferred procedure although, in recent times, there seems to be a trend towards cementless implants and a shorter period of antibiotic treatment. (medsci.org)
  • Infections may result in allergic reaction (ALLERGIC BRONCHOPULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS), colonization in pulmonary cavities as fungus balls (MYCETOMA), or lead to invasion of the lung parenchyma (INVASIVE PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS). (bioportfolio.com)
  • The infections may be acquired from intraoperative contamination (early) or hematogenously acquired from other sites (late). (bioportfolio.com)
  • Hence, novel biomaterials that inhibit microbial growth would be of great significance to eliminate medical device/instruments associated infections. (springerprofessional.de)
  • The subspecies of P. acnes that cause these infections of otherwise sterile tissues (prior to medical procedures), however, are the same subspecies found on the skin of individuals who do not have acne-prone skin, so are likely local contaminants. (wikipedia.org)
