In this retrospective cohort study, we investigate (a) success rate of DAIR for treating PJI following primary TKA surgery and (b) whether time after primary surgery until DAIR and (c) type of isolated microorganism influence outcome.METHODS: Sixty-seven patients with PJI following primary TKA surgery treated with DAIR were identified. Patients with insufficient data and patients who did not fulfill Musculoskeletal Infection Society PJI criteria were excluded, leaving 58 patients for analysis. Minimum follow-up was 2 years. A DAIR was considered a success if the patient was infection free after 2 years.RESULTS: The overall success rate of PJI treated with DAIR was 84%. Median time until DAIR was 21 days (7-1092). Thirty-four patients (59%) were revised within 28 days, 42 patients (72%) within 42 days, while 10 patients (17%) were revised more than 90 days after primary TKA surgery.
