Short summary
Infection after total hip (THA) or total knee (TKA) arthroplasty can be treated by a so-called DAIR procedure within 4 weeks after surgery. However, could a DAIR be successful up to 3 months? In the Dutch Arthroplasty Register we found a re-revision rate of 8% within 4 weeks after THA and 9% re-revisions between 4 and 12 weeks. After TKA we found 9% re-revisions within 4 weeks and 17% failures after 4–12 weeks. We show no difference for DAIRs performed within 4 weeks or between 4 and 12 weeks.
