  1. Human immunodeficiency virus transmission between surgeons and patients in orthopaedic surgery.

    Article - En anglais

    Surgeons are at risk for contracting human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from patients.

    The risk of HIV transmission between patient and surgeon and the potential strategies to reduce the risk of HIV transmission are important.

    Continuous occupational exposure makes the risk of HIV transmission greater for surgeons than patients.

    Although the risk of seroconversion after a single exposure is relatively low, the risk for surgeons is more appropriate expressed as a cumulative lifetime risk.

    The estimated cumulative risk of HIV seroconversion for surgeons may be as high as 1 to 4%.
