  • Is Climate Associated With Revision for Prosthetic Joint Infection After Primary TKA? [Journal Article]
  • COClin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Feb 21
  • Parkinson B, Armit D, … Harris IA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Climate factors are associated with the risk of early revision for PJI in patients undergoing primary TKA with rates of such revisions approximately double in tropical regions compared with nontropical regions. Additionally, tropical regions demonstrate a seasonal variation with the risk of PJI doubling during the warmer, monsoonal wet season of summer and fall. These findings should be confirmed in further studies that can better control for possible confounding variables. The mechanism for this phenomenon is not clear, and further research into this subject is also indicated.
