Table 2 Organism profile at first-stage resection arthroplasty and second-stage reimplantation

From: Can we rely on the combination of serological tests and frozen sections at the time of reimplantation for two-stage exchange hip arthroplasty in patients with a “dry tap”?

Staphylococcus aureus 9 (9.3%) 3 (3.1%)
Coagulase negative Staphylococci 33 (34.0%) 10 (10.3%)
Methicillin-resistant organism 5 (5.2%) 2 (2.1%)
Enterococcus spp. 6 (6.2%) 1 (1.0%)
