Two-stage revision using aminoglycoside-cement spacers (A-CSs) is widely used to manage chronic periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). However, aminoglycoside-resistance in gram-positive cocci (GPC) seems to be increasing. Moreover, the contribution of these A-CSs to select resistant mutants is a matter of concern. We study the antibiotic susceptibility profile of GPC after 113 chronic hip and knee PJIs. Aminoglycoside susceptibility-profiles were compared between cases where A-CSs had… CONTINUE READING
