We determined the MIC and minimum biofilm bactericidal concentration (MBBC) of tedizolid and vancomycin against 97 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus and 74 isolates of Staphylococcus epidermidis associated with prosthetic joint infection. All isolates were vancomycin susceptible in the planktonic state; all staphylococci studied had a tedizolid MIC ≤0.5 μg/mL. The MBBC90 was >32 and >128 μg/mL for tedizolid and vancomycin, respectively.
