Short summary
This systematic review presents the results regarding the concordance rate between preoperative synovial fluid and intraoperative tissue culturing in patients with a prosthetic joint infection (PJI). The included studies had heterogeneous results and were at a high risk of bias. Higher-quality future research may help to better understand the true concordance between these cultures. This may result in better guidance for orthopedic surgeons regarding the treatment of patients with PJI.
