In this hour-long webinar presented by the Section on Biologics & Basic Research, faculty will examine the current knowledge on gut microbiome analysis and address the evidence supporting the correlation between the gut biome and subclinical infection contributing to high pseudoarthrosis rates. In addition, participants will gain insight about the new changes to the standard of care and clinical procedures that will drastically reduce the rate of non-iatrogenic biofilm linked fusion failure.
