Seventh Annual Joint Replacement Lecture - Periprosthetic Joint Infection: Evolution in Action

Thursday, October 5, 2017  
Swedish Orthopedic Institute
SOI Conference Center
601 Broadway
Seattle, WA 98122

Intended Audience
Orthopedic surgeons in the Pacific Northwest.

Description
The first ever Global Guidelines for the Prevention of Surgical Site Infection were released by the World Health Organization in 2016 due to the global rise in post operative surgical site infections. These new guidelines have had an impact on reducing factors of infection after total joint replacement.

Among orthopedic surgeons, there is a lack of knowledge regarding new developments in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of post-operative periprosthetic joint infections.  Industry, academic researchers, and government agencies are increasing collaboration to address Post-operative periprosthetic infection through development of novel technologies, therapeutic strategies, and regulatory science that specifically target the unique biofilm-associated aspects of its pathogenesis. 

By learning to implement effective strategies for prevention of infection, utilize available diagnostic modalities for peri-prosthetic joint infection and discuss novel discoveries related to management of post-operative infections, orthopedic surgeons will be better equipped to avoid post-operative infections of total joint replacement, thereby improving the outcomes of total joint replacement.

Details

Industry, academic researchers, and government agencies are increasing collaboration to address Post-operative periprosthetic infection through development of novel technologies, therapeutic strategies, and regulatory science that specifically target the unique biofilm-associated aspects of its pathogenesis. Orthopedic surgeons must be informed of these advances in order to insure the best possible outcome for patients receiving total joint replacements.
