Short summary
Our objective was to analyze if patients with larger soft-tissue thickness measured in X-rays have greater risk of acute infection after hip arthroplasty. We reviewed acute-infection patients in our institution over 6 years and selected 2 patients with similar demographics that were not infected for each case. Larger measurements showed association with acute infection. This easily obtainable measurement might provide helpful data in making preoperative risk assessments and prevention programs.
