Abstract

Research studies with evidence impacting clinical practice have used disparate definitions of shoulder periprosthetic joint infection, likely leading to variable and inconsistent conclusions about its diagnosis and management. In an effort to establish uniform guidelines for clinical decision making and research reporting, a clear definition of periprosthetic shoulder infection was established at the 2018 International Consensus Meeting on Orthopedic Infections.
