It gained popularity as a treatment for infected hip pros- theses shortly thereafter and was considered a more necessary intervention before the proliferation of antibiotics and reconstruction implants and techniques available today. The historical perspective, surgical technique, current indications and results are described in this chapter.

There are several potential reasons for the prevalence of culture-negative PJI: preemptive antimicrobial therapy, and inadequate culture techniques and protocols. Perhaps the most common cause of culture-negative PJI is administration of antibiotics prior to obtaining fluid or tissue samples from the affected joint [ 53 Berbari EF, Marculescu C, Sia I, et al.

J Bone Joint Surg Am ; 94 18 : Nearly a quarter of patients had confirmed PJI. The purpose of the study was to determine the utility of intraoperative frozen section analysis for distinguishing between patients with confirmed PJI and those revised for aseptic failure. The authors found that intraoperative frozen section analysis had a very good pooled positive likelihood ratio Multiple positive cultures are most confirmatory for PJI.
If a negative preoperative aspiration is obtained in the setting of elevated synovial and serum markers suggestive of infection, repeat aspiration should be performed prior to surgery or initiation of antimicrobial treatment [ 57 Barrack RL, Jennings RW, Wolfe MW, Bertot AJ. Expert opinion suggests meticulous soft tissue handling and systematic selection of tissue samples, to prevent false-positive cultures and to improve culture yields, respectively [ 63 Zmistowski B, Della Valle C, Bauer TW, et al.
Tissue should be dissected sharply from the intramedullary canal and implant-bone interfaces, and specimens should be directly transferred into appropriate culture containers with clean instruments [ 63 Zmistowski B, Della Valle C, Bauer TW, et al.
