Correspondence Laminar flow: the better choice in orthopaedic implants – Authors' reply

We appreciate Paul Jutte and colleagues' comments on our systematic review of studies of the effect of laminar airflow ventilation on surgical site infections (SSI).1 One of their main concerns is the use of data obtained from national surveillance systems and registries, since these databases were not designed specifically to address whether laminar airflow systems decrease the risk of SSIs. In their comment, Weinstein and Bonten2 also highlighted the high amount of clinical and statistical heterogeneity of the studies included in our review.
