Short summary
Implant-associated infections (IAIs) in orthopaedic surgery are associated with high morbidity and mortality. Slow-growing anaerobic bacteria are increasingly being recognized as potential causative agents in such infections, but their diagnosis is difficult. The purpose of this review is to summarize the current knowledge of IAIs with these bacteria. In particular, the review gives an overview of the current methodology in the diagnosis of such infections, to serve as a guide for clinicians.
