    ICJR COLLECTIONS: Periprosthetic Joint Infection after TJA

    Understanding the latest concepts in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of perioprosthetic joint infection (PJI) is a hot topic among surgeons who perform total joint arthroplasty.

    To help, we’ve collected resources on managing PJI in total hip and total knee arthroplasty patients from the ICJR archives, including presentations from ICJR meetings, surgical videos, articles, and clinical reports.
