Modular knee arthrodesis (MKU) is a salvage treatment for recurrent periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) or PJI associated with notable bone loss. Reimplantation endoprosthetic reconstruction (REI) is an option in patients with MKU who have PJI clearance but are not satisfied with pain or functional outcomes with MKU. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of MKU to REI conversion.
