Pre-op THA and TKA patients
Patients who are scheduled for total joint arthroplasty
- Development of surgical site infection. [ Time Frame: Change in surgical site from baseline at 6 months, 1 year, 18 months and 2 years. ]The patient will be assessed by phone every 6 months for 2 years for development of infection at the surgical site.
- Anatomical site(s) which are best utilized for swab cultures to detect S aureus. [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months post operatively. ]We hope to determine which anatomical site(s) are best utilized for swab cultures to detect S aureus colonization in patients undergoing prosthetic joint replacement. We will collect data on infection development for up to 2 years post operatively.
- Post operative infection (s.aureus) development. [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months post operation. ]We will measure at what percentage a pre-operative questionnaire accurately predicts if a patient will develop an infection (s.aureus) between day one and 2 years post operatively.
