Each year, around 1500 infected Total Hip Arthroplasties (THA) need non-conservative surgery, remaining an issue for patients and healthcare units. The recommended treatment, relying on cohort reviews and international consensus follows a two-stage protocol. This protocol implies a first surgery to remove all infected implants and at least 6 weeks of antibiotic treatment without implant, then usually an antibiotic-free period and only then a second surgery to put back new implants and start the rehabilitation protocol, with usually more than a week of a second hospital stay. Between both surgeries, full-weight bearing is prohibited and joint stiffness and/or pain are rather usual complications. Failure rate is estimated at 10% in this two-stage strategy. The single-stage procedure (i.e. implanting back a new prosthesis during the same surgery after implant removal, synovectomy and lavage) is thought to be less susceptible to late functional complications (i.e. pain, stiffness and muscle deficiency) with a shorter, single hospital stay.
Although, with single-stage surgery, infection control could be less efficient because most pathogens produce during the first hours of infection an antibiotic-resistant layer called biofilm, allowing them to colonize and adhere to foreign objects like implants. This single-surgery protocol thus highly relies on antibiotics and has a list of contra-indications (based on experts' consensus): the presence of damaged soft tissues or a sinus tract, unknown pathogens, difficult to treat micro-organisms, severe immunosuppression and for many surgeons, each time a bone graft is necessary. Most of these contra-indications are directly related to the biofilm.
As no randomized control trial has ever compared single-stage versus two-stage surgery, the level of evidence for recommending one procedure over the other is low.
We conducted a survey that showed that most of the French reference centers have already switched to single stage surgery for single-stage non contra-indicated cases.
An antibiotic-loaded hydrogel coating (Defensive Antiadhesive Coating®, Novagenit SRL), has been proven to mechanically prevent the biofilm formation, while allowing a prolonged intraarticular antibiotic release, in a randomized controlled trial in primary prevention of infection in THA.
The addition of this biofilm inhibitor to a single-stage surgery might stand as a promising strategy for secondary prevention of peri-prosthetic hip joint infection. Moreover, using this device to prevent biofilm formation could expand one stage surgery to patients that are "normally" contra-indicated to one stage surgery.

Experimental: Single-stage surgery + DAC® + topical antibiotics
Experimental group is composed of single-stage procedure associated to the use of biofilm inhibitor (Defensive Antibacterial Coating® DAC®) and topical antibiotics=new strategy
Device: Defensive Antiadhesive Coating DAC®, Novagenit SRL
DAC gel, mixed with topical antibiotics is applied on the surface of the implants before implantation, in a sterile environment in the operating room.
The topical antibiotics will be added to the reconstituted DAC® gel preparation, at the discretion of the physician, on the basis of pre-operative culture.
No Intervention: control group : two-stage surgery
Control group is composed of two-stage procedure without biofilm inhibitor (standard protocol)
- Recurrence of clinically diagnosed infection relapse of the periprosthetic joint [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]
The periprosthetic joint infection is defined according to the Musculoskeletal Infection Society criteria:
- Two positive periprosthetic cultures with phenotypically identical organisms
- or a sinus tract communicating with the joint,
or having 3 of 5 minor criteria:
- Elevated serum C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR);
- Elevated synovial fluid white blood cell (WBC) count;
- Elevated synovial fluid polymorphonuclear neutrophil percentage (PMN%);
- Positive histological analysis of periprosthetic tissue;
- A single positive culture.
- Harris Hip Score (HHS) results [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Harris Hip Score (HHS) contains 10 items with maximum score at 100 for a perfect hip and minimum score at 0 for a very bad result.
- Postel-Merle d'Aubigné (PMA) results [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Postel-Merle d'Aubigné (PMA) contains 3 items (pain, mobility and functional hip) with maximum score at 18 for a perfect hip and minimum score at 0 for a very bad result.
- Hip dysfunction and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS) results [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Hip dysfunction and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score contains 6 items (symptoms, stiffness, pain, function and daily life, sport and leisure activities, quality of life) and measure everyday activities with score from 0 to 4.
- Oxford-12 results [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Oxford-12 allows to know the feelings of the patient during the last 4 weeks felt from 1 to 5 (satisfaction score).
- Death rate (%) [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Analysis of death rate by group.
- Post-operative complications [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Analysis of post-operative complications by group.
- Revision surgery for any cause other than infection [ Time Frame: Years : 2 ]Analysis of revision surgery for any cause other than infection.
