Onychomycosis infection prevents orthopedic surgery?

    I am hoping my learned friends will be able to shed some reasoning as to why patients are being refused orthopedic surgery on the grounds of OM.

    A group of colleagues have been having a cross country discussion via email and we have failed to come up with recent and robust evidence to suggest a basis for refusal.

    We understand that OM can affect reganulation of wound sites.

    Any direction towards research would be useful.

    Thank you

    Hi George

    What type of orthopaedic surgery? Is it digital/foot or knees/shoulders etc?

    This has been reported by patients waiting for hip and knee replacements.
