Extract

The modern era of total hip arthroplasty is little more than thirty years old, and during that time the procedure has proved to be highly effective in improving the physical function, social interaction, and over-all health of millions of patients47. Initially, the procedure was associated with notable rates of infection16, but these have since been reduced considerably with measures such as prophylactic antibiotics, ultraclean-air operating rooms, and careful selection of patients36. However, this reduction in the prevalence of postoperative deep infection has been accompanied by a steady increase in the frequency with which the operation is performed.
