Diagnostics in prosthetic joint infections
Prosthetic joint infection (PJI) poses a significant burden on patients, clinicians and the healthcare economy. Although various tests have been established for the diagnosis of PJI, the diagnosis remains challenging. In this review, established and potential future diagnostic tests are presented, some of which could provide stepping stones towards improved diagnosis, identification of aetiological agents and efficacious therapeutic options for the management of PJI.

Abstract

Prosthetic joint infection (PJI) poses a significant burden on patients, clinicians and the healthcare economy. Although various tests have been established for the diagnosis of PJI, the diagnosis remains challenging. In this review, established and potential future diagnostic tests are presented, some of which could provide stepping stones towards improved diagnosis, identification of aetiological agents and efficacious therapeutic options for the management of PJI.
