Revision knee arthroplasty is conducted more frequently in our day, due to the increasing number of primary knee arthroplasty. Periprosthetic joint infections, in particular, are still one of the major problems of revision knee arthroplasty. Before deciding to conduct a single or two-stage revision following diagnosis of infection, it is required to have a detailed clinical examination of the patient. In appropriate cases, single-stage revision knee arthroplasty after a good preoperative planning can lead to quite successful outcomes.
