Prosthetic joint implantation became a broadly diffused surgery routine due to its life quality enhancement potential, but it carries the intrinsic risk of infection that all surgeries have. Currently, millions of devices are being successfully implanted every year worldwide. Although surgical techniques have been optimized and prostheses are safe and built with germ free materials, prosthetic joint infections are a sanitary burden that often leads the patient to death or serious complications. With this in mind, it is clear that new ideas are needed in order to limit this phenomenon and give to this surgical area a life-saving plan. This opinion paper aim is in fact to elaborate a fresh preventive perspective to reduce as much as possible the prosthetic joint infections incidence.
