Does the presence of skin lesions (i.e., boils, grazes, folliculitis, etc.), either in the proximity or distant to the surgical site, predispose patients to surgical site infections/ periprosthetic joint infections (SSIs/PJIs)? If so, is it necessary for patients with these skin lesions to undergo treatment prior to elective total joint arthroplasty (TJA)?
