The article discusses the study on how to measure several infections at the site of arthroplasties in the U.S. According to the study, between 1990 to 2002 the prevalence of primary and revision of total hip and total knee arthroplasty has increased. In addition, about 1.2% of the total hip arthroplasties performed in the country were associated with deep infection, which was similar to the rate found for total knee surgery.
