With the advent of an aging society, the number of patients with osteoarthritis is increasing. The pathogenesis of osteoarthritis is not yet fully elucidated, and patients with end-stage osteoarthritis often require joint arthroplasty, and there are many complications after joint arthroplasty, such as periprosthetic joint infection and aseptic loosening, and revision surgeries are needed. In recent years, with the use of advanced technologies and concepts such as 3D printing, computer navigation, robot surgeon, and enhanced recovery after surgery, significant progresses in joint replacement as well as revision surgery have been made.
However, how to investigate the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis and provide interventional treatment to slow down the development of osteoarthritis, how to effectively promote enhanced recovery after surgery for rapid recovery, how to effectively diagnose and treat periprosthetic joint infection, how to effectively address the large amount of bone loss during revision surgery, and so on are still pressing issues that need to be addressed. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on, but is not limited to, the latest basic and clinical research advances in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis, joint replacement, revision surgery, periprosthetic joint infection, and aseptic loosening, so as to advance the understanding of the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis, as well as the treatment of joint replacement and related complications.
