Abstract

Wound contamination of primary THR occurs frequently in both standard and ultra-clean operating theaters and contamination is greater at the end of surgery than at the beginning (p=0.04). In this small series, we found no differences in wound contamination between standard and ultra-clean theaters (p=0.1).
