Hardware infections can occur after a hip replacement

Hardware infections due to artificial body parts can become infected and when they do, they can be extremely difficult to eradicate. In many instances, I.V. antibiotics may be administered to treat the infection. If the hardware infection still persists, it is sometimes necessary to remove the hardware, administer another round of antibiotics, and then replace the hardware with a completely new prosthesis. Still others who may not be candidates for this complicated surgery, may be treated first with I.V. antibiotics and then long-term oral antibiotics to maintain a good result.
