Short summary
This study investigated the association between summer and the risk of revision due to prosthetic joint infection (PJI) following primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) in a large Danish nationwide cohort in a temperate northern European climate. There is no association between primary THA performed during the summer compared to the rest of the year and the risk of revision due to PJI. In perspective, it seems that the northern European climate does not influence the risk of PJI.
