Abstract

Deep infection in total hip replacement poses a significant challenge to the clinician, in terms of successful treatment and cost containment. The authors describe a protocol that has been successfully utilized in four patients. Cost analysis was performed to evaluate the financial efficacy and viability of treating these patients in a community hospital setting.
