Details

The standard treatment when deep infection strikes is a two-stage revision. This complimentary webinar, hosted by The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS), will look at prognostic factors that affect the odds of success in two-stage revision arthroplasty for infected knees and hips.

  • Tad M. Mabry, MD, coauthor of a matched cohort study in JBJS, will examine the impact of morbid obesity on the failure of two-stage revision TKA.
  • JBJS author Antonia F. Chen, MD, will discuss results from a retrospective study that revealed an association between positive cultures at the time of knee/hip component reimplantation and the risk of subsequent treatment failure. 

Moderated by Charles R. Clark, MD, an adult-reconstruction specialist and JBJS Deputy Editor, the webinar will include additional perspectives from two expert commentators - Daniel J. Berry, MD and Andrew A. Freiberg, MD. The last 15 minutes will be devoted to a live Q&A session, during which the audience can ask questions of all four panelists. If periprosthetic joint infection is a concern, this is a webinar you don't want to miss.
