Periprosthetic joint infection is a devastating complication after total joint arthroplasty associated with substantial patient morbidity. Prevention is the most important strategy to deal with this disabling complication, and should begin with identifying patient-related risk factors. Patient-related risk factors such as morbid obesity, malnutrition, hyperglycemia, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, preoperative anemia, cardiovascular disorders, chronic renal failure, smoking, alcohol abuse, and depression should be evaluated and optimized prior to surgery.
