Here his feedback:
PRO-IMPLANT Foundation has the honor to announce the launch of far-reaching multicenter study European Prosthetic Joint Infection Cohort (EPJIC).
Consensus of expert opinions is the lowest level of clinical evidence and cannot replace clinical studies. Therefore, consensus proceedings cannot be used as clinical guidelines.
Here her feedback:
Take a look at interesting and valuable feedbacks from participants:
As a contribution to the professional community in the field of implant-associated infections, PRO-IMPLANT Foundation has launched "Knowledge Base" - latest treatment recommendations, management algorithms, antibiotic tables, video tutorials and recent updates in implant-associated infections.
Infections of the bones (osteomyelitis) and joints (septic arthritis) are serious health problems which require antibiotics and often surgery. Awareness among health professionals of the causes and treatment options for various types of bone and joint infections is essential for effective resolution.
PRO-IMPLANT Foundation members held a presentation on neurosurgical infection at the Spanish National Congress of Neurosurgery (SENEC) in Pamplona, Spain, 19-22 May 2015. The talk covered diagnosis and treatment of infections after craniotomy, shunt-, drain- and neurostimulator infections, as well as spine infections with and without implants.
Here his feedback:
PROOF-Study: The efficacy and safety of high-dose intravenous fosfomycin (5 g every 8 hours) in combination with other antibiotic is evaluated in complicated bone and implant-associated infections caused by staphylococci, enterococci and gram-negative organisms.
For the first time PRO-IMPLANT Foundation hosted at the Workshop on PJI also participants from Latvia: Dr. Peteris Studers (Trauma/Ortho) and Dr. Martins Malzubris (Ortho and Bone Infections). We are looking forward to establishing a close collaboration in research and clinical practice with Baltic countries.
Prof. Dr. Zimmerli is going to give talks: “PJI: Clinical presentation, surgical options and antimicrobial therapy”, and "Prevention of PJI", and share his valuable experience in different PJI cases in upcoming Workshop on Prosthetic Joint Infection (PJI) on March 21-22.
