    Outcome of short versus long interval in two-stage exchange for periprosthetic joint infection: a prospective cohort study


    For chronic periprosthetic joint infection, a 6-8 week interval is commonly used before re-implantation. We evaluated the influence of a short (< 4 weeks) and long (>/= 4 weeks) prosthesis-freeinterval on reinfection rate and functional outcome of hip and knee periprosthetic joint infection. Our study suggests that two-stage exchange with short interval has a similar outcome than with long interval, when highly active antibiotic therapy is used. Patient inconvenience and care costs due to immobilization were lower when strategies with a short interval were used.

    Immunomodulatory placental-expanded, mesenchymal stromal cells improve muscle function following hip arthroplasty


    In this study we addressed surgical trauma-related muscle injuries resulting from Hip arthroplasty by local intraoperative application of allogeneic placenta-derived, mesenchymal-like adherent cells (PLX-PAD). This cell type was used because of its high regenerative and immunomodulatory potency and we could show that this allogeneic PLX-PAD therapy improved strength and volume of the injured skeletal muscle with a reasonable safety profile. Outcomes could be positively correlated with the modulation of early postoperative stress-related immunological reactions.
