Complex diagnostics and treatment potential of deep implant- associated infection of knee joint


The review of open access literature on the issues of complex diagnostics and treatment potential of implant-associated infection of the knee joint area was given in the article. We describe clinical signs, the potential of laboratory diagnostics of deep implant-associated infection from the point of view of sensitivity and specificity as well as main methods of surgical treatment of the pathology.
