Abstract

Successful treatment of prosthetic joint infections often requires multiple surgical interventions and prolonged antibiotic therapy. However, in some specific situations surgical intervention can not be the treatment of choice. We refer to situations where there is no pain or impairment of the general conditions, involving patients, usually elderly, refusing surgery. In these cases we consider the conservative approach as an option.
