Abstract

Implant infection is an aggressive, often irreducible post-surgical infection. It remains the primary cause of implant failure. Bacterial contamination during surgery and subsequent adhesion onto biomaterial surface of opportunistic microorganisms, such as staphylococcal species, exopolysaccharidic slimes or specific adhesins, initiates the implant infection. Pathogenesis of periprosthestic infection is the focus of studies aimed at developing infection resistant materials.
