The article discusses research being done on the use of a protocol to determine which patients should receive single- or two-stage revision hip arthoplasty for infection. It references a study by Fares S. Haddad et al, presented at the 24th Annual Current Concepts in Joint Replacement Winter Meeting in December 2007 in Orlando, Florida. They focus their study on single-stage revisions in healthy, non-immunocompromised patients with moderate bone loss and sensitive organisms.
