Aseptic Revision

Revision procedures are mainly classified as aseptic. But in 10% to 30% of the cases this is a false-negative diagnosis and the loosening is caused by a periprosthetic joint infection. In addition, each revision surgery already means an increased risk for an infection of the patient. Keeping this in mind, the effectiveness of the therapy is increased by using dual loaded antibiotic bone cements to lower the risk of a PJI.
