Introduction: Periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) are increasing as a result of increased major joint arthroplasty (MJA). Classical treatment of PJI is a two-stage revision. However, this approach results in morbidity and is not cost effective. We investigated whether covering of the implants with bone cement is sufficient for eradication of microorganism on biofilm.
