Is There a Role for Suppressive Antibiotics in Patients With Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI) of Total Ankle Arthroplasty (TAA) Who Have Undergone Surgical Treatment?
RECOMMENDATION: Culture-directed antibiotic therapy is recommended for patients undergoing operative treatment of infected total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). Routine administration of suppressive antibiotics in patients with an ankle prosthesis in place is not warranted; however, in certain clinical circumstances, this may be of benefit. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Consensus. DELEGATE VOTE: Agree: 100%, Disagree: 0%, Abstain: 0% (Unanimous, Strongest Consensus).
