Short summary
Cutibacterium acnes infections in hip arthroplasty may be underdiagnosed. Cemented components in THA seem to protect from colonization of Cutibacterium acnes. Post-operative infections are preferably surgically treated with DAIR within a month after hip replacement but infection eradication may still not be excluded at an extended time in some cases. Further large-scale studies are needed to confirm our results.
