Publication date2019
Abstract

OBJECTIVE The optimal duration of postsurgical antibiotic therapy for adult native joint bacterial arthritis remains unknown. METHODS We conducted a prospective, unblinded, randomised, non-inferiority study comparing either 2 or 4 weeks of antibiotic therapy after surgical drainage of native joint bacterial arthritis in adults. Excluded were implant-related infections, episodes without surgical lavage and episodes with a follow-up of less than 2 months.

Keywords
