  1. I agree with this approach..it is pragmatic and makes sense to me.
    I believe that prior recommendations tended to overuse antibiotics.

  2. i am already following this approach

  3. I already do this but some ortho are still recommending prophylaxis. It’s hard to convince a patient otherwise when their specialist told them they needed antibiotics. Clearly all specialties need to be educated so we can advise our patients appropriately.

  4. There is still confusion about prophylaxis with joint replacements. Ortho surgeons still advise it and I don’t really know why. I am an ortho surgeon. Hopefully I will see some evidence so I can stop.

  5. I am also following these guidelines.
