Abstract

Wound healing issues are not rare after total knee arthroplasty. While most patients heal with local wound care, a minority is susceptible to develop serious complications such as peri-prosthetic joint infection. If direct closure is not feasible, we recommend a multidisciplinary approach based on the ortho-plastic model to determine the optimal wound closure strategy. Negative pressure wound therapy can be used while waiting for definitive coverage to optimise wound environment. Medial gastrocnemius flap is considered as the gold standard procedure for peri-prosthetic substance loss around the knee.
