Short summary
This study reports a rate of deep surgical site infection (SSI) of 0.2 % in a cohort of patients treated surgically for osteoarthritis of the hip at the 90 d review mark using CDC/NHSN criteria for diagnosis. This work establishes a reliable population-based baseline infection rate for early-onset deep SSI after total hip arthroplasty for osteoarthritis. It also provides valuable insight into risk factors associated with developing an early-onset deep SSI.
