RECOMMENDATION: Acute reinfections in patients with oncologic endoprostheses demand treatment by surgical methods because the long-term administration of antibiotics alone is not sufficient. The most appropriate treatment modality for acute re-infection is debridement, antibiotics and implant retention (DAIR) with exchange of components.
