Postoperative Spinal Implant Infection (PSII)

Posted On 2021-01-25 13:43:10


This series on “Postoperative Spinal Implant Infection (PSII)” is edited by Dr. Matthias Pumberger, Deputy Chief of the Spine Department at the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery at the Charité University Medicine Berlin.

The purpose of this series is to provide an overview of evidence-based strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of PSIIs covering their epidemiology, diagnosis of acute and delayed infections, implications from existing literature on PJIs, surgical strategies, antibiotic treatment, and patient-reported outcomes. To ensure a comprehensive and interdisciplinary perspective we have invited spine experts from neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery backgrounds as well as infectiology experts. We are very excited to share this series and hope you find it informative and valuable in the care of your patients.
