Abstract

We extend our commendation to Drs. Otto and L'Hommedieu for their thorough review in Chapter 24 of orthopedic biomaterials technology and the management of patients with implanted orthopaedic devices. Our practice does not differ significantly from theirs. Improvements in aseptic technique, availability of antibiotic prophylaxis, and enhancements in both internal fixation devices and joint prostheses have revolutionized orthopedic care since the 1950s, improving the quality of life for millions of patients across all orthopedic subspecialty areas.
