RECOMMENDATION: There is no conclusive data regarding what metrics can be used in order to determine the optimal timing of reimplantation for an infected TAA. We recommend that reimplantation is performed when there are clinical signs of resolution of infection (well healed wound, lack of erythema, etc.), and the serological markers have substantially declined (> 40%) from baseline (measured at the time of diagnosis of infection).
