Abstract

Recent studies have questioned the role of unidirectional airflow ventilation system in reducing surgical site infection (SSI) in prosthetic implant surgery. The aim of the ISChIA study ("Infezioni del Sito Chirurgico in Interventi di Artroprotesi" which means "Surgical site infections in arthroplasty surgery") was to evaluate, as a contribution to this debate, the association between heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, microbial air contamination and surgical site infection in hip and knee arthroplasty.
