Principles and Practice of Surgery
James Garden Rowan W Parks. Paperback ISBN: The dyes are most effective when applied to fresh tissue. Fresh tissue should be patted dry before applying the dye. Fixed tissues should be wiped gently to remove the fluids covering the tissue surfaces.
It may take slightly longer to dry on fixed tissue. Apply dyes to excised tissue only. Never apply dye to a living patient.
Apply the tissue marking dye using wooden applicator sticks, cotton swabs, or brushes depending on the size of the tissue sample.
The tissue marking dyes require 2 to 5 minutes to bond to the tissue surface and should be left alone for this period of time. It is not necessary to dry the tissue or use a mordant. After use, the caps should be kept on the bottles. Comparison with previous work In this comprehensive quantitative review, we report several relevant findings that have not been previously reported.
Some of our findings are also consistent with that of previous reviews on the topic. Consistent with our results, George and colleagues in their review of 20 studies reported that one-stage revision was associated with better infection control compared with two-stage revision and the difference was not significant Functional outcomes as measured by CM score was also better for the one-stage revision.
In a systematic review including 15 studies, Marcheggiani and colleagues reported significantly better infection control rates for one-stage revision compared to two-stage revision, with no difference between CM scores Nelson and colleagues reported higher infection control for two-stage revision; however, in their systematic review including 30 studies, the difference between the two strategies was not significant The CM score for one-stage revision was also better but not significantly different.
In our study, we employed a robust meta-analytical approach which took into account appropriate weighting of studies, whereas previous reviews simply summed the number of patients and number of infections, an approach which gives misleading results In addition to reporting data on noninfection complication rates and other measures of function as well as pain, we were careful not to include studies with overlapping participants; an approach that was ignored by the previous reviews.
For example, the study of Klatte et al.
We also only included studies of patients with PJI following a shoulder arthroplasty as the index procedure and not other procedures such as rotator cuff surgery and internal fixation; as inclusion of these could have biased our results.
In the absence of clinical trial data, our results provide up-to-date reliable evidence on the comparative effectiveness of the two revision strategies, as they are based on a larger number of studies and outcomes and employed a meta-analytic approach taking into account the heterogeneity between contributing studies.
Implications of our findings Overall, findings from our study suggest that the one-stage revision strategy for the management of PJI of the shoulder is at least equally as effective as the two-stage in terms of infection control and maintenance of joint function.
Indeed, the principal aim of treatment is to eradicate and prevent recurrence of infection as well as optimise joint function Noninfection complications were also lower for one-stage revision. There are no clear management guidelines or consensus as to which revision strategy to use for PJI of the shoulder.
Considerable research into the treatment of PJI has been carried out in patients with lower limb arthroplasty and this body of evidence has provided insight for treatment of shoulder infection 7. However, infections in shoulder arthroplasty are characterised by different infective organisms, signs and symptoms, laboratory data, and also run a different clinical course The treatment of PJIs in the shoulder joint is indeed a challenging task for both the surgeon and the healthcare system.

George et al. However, the two-stage revision is generally considered as the standard treatment. The two-stage procedure which is considered the treatment of choice in patients who are medically stable 9 , 30 , 34 , 35 and recommended when the infective microorganism is unknown 3 , has been commonly associated with successful eradication of infection in several case series 34 , 36 , However, this procedure frequently results in significant functional impairment 38 , given the requirement for two major surgical procedures.
It is also costly for the healthcare system.Figure 3 Rate of re-infection in patients treated by two-stage revision.
Finally, there is a potential that data from national joint registries may be extremely useful in answering these questions, given their large-scale nature and cohort designs. However, infections in shoulder arthroplasty are characterised by different infective organisms, signs and symptoms, laboratory data, and also run a different clinical course Our primary outcome was re-infection recurrent and new infections with clinical measures of function and pain as well as noninfection complication rates employed as secondary outcomes.
Disturbances in water, electrolyte and acid-base balance. It is a comprehensive textbook for both the surgical student and trainee, guiding the reader through key core surgical topics which are encountered throughout an integrated medical curriculum as well as in subsequent clinical practice.
So, in a nutshell, every medico can get benefits from this book.
The noninfection complication rate was also lower for one-stage revision compared with two-stage revision, though not significantly different. This ensured a more reliable comparison of the effectiveness of the two revision strategies in more detail than ever before.
There was a comparatively smaller number of one-stage studies and limited data on the secondary clinical outcomes, which precluded the ability to robustly compare the two revision strategies head-to-head.
