Active Comparator: Rifampicin-combination therapy
Cloxacillin or vancomycin in combination with Rifampicin. Treatment of early staphylococcal prosthetic joint infections in addition to debridement and retention of the prosthesis.
Drug: Rifampin-combination therapy
Rifampin 300 mg x 3 po and cloxacillin 2 g x 4 iv for two weeks. Then rifampin 300 mg x 3 po and cloxacillin 1 g x 4 po for 4 weeks. In case of methicillin resistance, rifampin 300 mg x 3 po and vancomycin 1 g x 2 iv for 6 weeks.
