Revision arthroplasty in the treatment of periprosthetic joint infection comprises the main element of the treatment process. Revision arthroplasty has two options, single and double stage exchange. Single stage revision offers some advantages over double stage revision. These are: need for one operation, reduced use of systemic antibiotics, short term hospitalization, relatively increased patient satisfaction, improved functional outcomes, decreased morbidity and reduced cost. So it is possible to achieve successful outcomes with single stage revision arthroplasty in appropriately selected patients.
