Short summary
Reported success rates of the different surgical options to treat periprosthetic infection vary in the literature. However, these rates rely on how authors define success. The goal of this study was to determine the most commonly used definitions of success based on a classification system published by the Musculoskeletal Infection Society. We found most studies did not use the strictest definitions of success, and success rates decreased when stricter definitions were used.
