As the rate of total knee and hip arthroplasty rises, so does the rate of per prosthetic infection following these procedures. To combat these rising rates, orthopedic surgeons must access quality publications to guide clinical practice towards effectively preventing, diagnosing, and treating Periprosthetic Joint Infection (“PJI”). A citation analysis was conducted to describe trends in the current and future research of PJI and serves as a comprehensive summary and reference for impactful PJI literature. The present commentary discusses pertinent findings from the bibliometric review study and provides a synopsis of PJI based on influential literature on the topic.
