Better guidelines needed to manage postoperative spine infection

By Admin | September 12, 2019

Compared to the literature available about how to manage acute and chronic infection in the total joint arthroplasty, few guidelines are available to help orthopedic surgeons manage postoperative infection in spine surgery patients, an orthopedic spine surgeon said at the Musculoskeletal Infection Society Annual Open Scientific Meeting, here.

“The large national associations, like the North American Spine Society and [American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons] AAOS, we really don’t have guidelines from them and that’s partly because of the data or the lack thereof. Clinical practice is highly variable,” Joseph H. Schwab, MD, MS, said
