The highly informative textbook »Principles of Orthopedic Infection Management«, edited by Olivier Borens and Stephen L. Kates, provides the core principles, treatment options, latest information and research specifficaly for the purpose of helping physicians manage orhtopedic infections and related issues.
As the medical world continues to make extraordinary advances in both scientific knowledge and surgical skill, surgeons still continue to struggle with the challenge of postoperative infection.
Key features of the book are contributions from world renowned specialists from a broad range of fields in orthopedic traumatology and infectious diseases, covering in-depth case examples, a wide range of infections and anatomy, algorithms to assist in complex decision making, etc.
For example, one of the chapters is concerned around septic arthritis (authors Olivier Borens and Anna Conen), which is commonly caused by hematogenous seeding of microorganisms from a distant infection focus. Alternatively, infection can occur after arthroscopy, intraarticular injection and cruciate ligament repair. Therefore immediate therapeutic intervention is necessary to decrease the associated morbidity and mortality. This chapter covers all important aspects of septic arthritis, and summarizes approaches to diagnosis and treatment of it.
