Video Information

In this video, Dr JC Monilau discusses what some of the main causes of infection are in knee arthroscopy surgery. He states the preventative measures are the best, including patient education and hygiene prior to surgery, graft choice, as well as antibiotics to use pre, intra and post operatively.

On his conclusion slide, he states that autograft pre-soaking with vancomycin reduces the rate of knee joint infection following an ACL reconstruction in comparison to AB prophylaxis alone.
