Watch the replay here from the virtual event with clinical and industry experts discussing the significant unmet medical need for patients suffering from periprosthetic joint infections (PJI). PJI, a serious complication occurring in joint replacements, is associated with high morbidity, 5-year mortality of over 20% and the need for complex interdisciplinary treatment strategies. Current standards of care include multiple major surgeries with no curative therapeutic solution, leaving a significant impact on patients’ quality of life. The panel brought together key stakeholders including an orthopedic surgeon, patient testimony, hospital administrator and payer to discuss the clinical and economic burden on the patients and the overall healthcare system.
