Core Tip Venous thromboembolism (VTE) and periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) are potentially devastating complications after total joint arthroplasty. D-dimer has limited utility with current cutoff values in the detection of VTE in the acute postoperative period. The D-dimer assay is a valuable biomarker in the diagnosis of chronic periprosthetic joint infection, and its utility may be optimized by using serum sample technique. Larger prospective trials with transparent lab testing protocols are necessary to establish best assay practices and optimal cutoff values for D-dimer in the diagnosis of VTE and PJI in arthroplasty patients.
