Patients with periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) are subjected to several potentially nephrotoxic conditions such as acute and chronic systemic inflammatory reactions, multiple surgical procedures and noxious antibiotics. This study aims to investigate 1) the incidence and severity of kidney injury in patients undergoing surgical treatment for PJI, 2) whether the number of surgeries affects renal function in PJI patients and 3) the potential risk factors for kidney injury.
