Özet

Background: The diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) in patients with inflammatory joint diseases (IJD) could be challenging. Several tests used for diagnosing PJI may be inaccurate due to baseline inflammatory characteristics of such diseases. We aimed to evaluate the accuracy of several infection biomarkers, in a specific subgroup of patients with PJI and IJD.
