RECOMMENDATION: There appears to be a higher incidence of infection in patients undergoing arthroplasty for acute femoral neck fracture compared to hip arthroplasty for primary osteoarthritis. The reported rate of infection has a wide range; prospective studies should be performed to determine the true rate of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) in this subset of patients.
