Advanced septic arthritis of the shoulder treated by a two-stage arthroplasty.

CONCLUSION: Short interval two-stage approach for septic shoulder arthritis is an effective treatment option. It should nonetheless be reserved for selected patients with advanced disease in which lavage and debridement have failed. PMID: 31754606 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Changing sensitivity patterns of microbes in septic arthritis point to a need for reconsidering empirical antibiotic therapy. Joint damage following infection can lead to significant disability.

We present the clinical, imaging, and laboratory findings of a 41-year-old male with culture proven Sporothrix schenckii osteoarticular infection of the right knee. Fungal arthropathies are a rare and indolent form of septic arthritis, which often leads to a delayed diagnosis. Early diagnosis and treatment of fungal arthropathies is critical to preventing permanent functional disability.

Abstract Septic arthritis of the elbow seems to be a contraindication for total elbow arthroplasty (TEA). We here describe a 65-year-old male, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) class 3 - patient, with a severely destructed right elbow due to septic arthritis with Staphylococcus aureus. His treatment consisted of multiple irrigation and debridement procedures including resection of the distal humerus, soft tissue coverage by local rotational flap and the use of a gentamicin-vancomycin loaded PMMA spacer, i.v. and oral antibiotics. After eradication of infection, a constraint cemented TEA could then succes...

ConclusionCT should be routinely obtained to recognize the possible extends to the surrounding structures. SCJ resection can result in satisfactory clinical results and should be considered in cases of extended infections including the surrounding structures. Empiric antibiotic coverage should contain cephalosporin or extended-spectrum penicillin. Inappropriate or less-invasive surgical procedures may cause recurrencent infections, especially in cases of osteomyelitis.
