Moraxella catarrhalis is not commonly associated with prosthetic joint infection (PJI). We present the first case of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis on certolizumab, an antitumor necrosis factor therapy, who developed PJI following a total knee replacement.
We present a 19-year-old collegiate athlete who sustained a low-energy closed tibial shaft fracture. Following closed reduction, the dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses were symmetric to the contralateral limb on physical examination. Angiography later confirmed triple vessel arterial disruption complicated by delayed ischemia requiring limb(More)
During open reduction of an irreducible anterior dislocation of a total hip replacement with an Oxinium femoral head, it was observed that the head had been significantly damaged. Gross and scanning electron microscopic examination revealed cracking, gouging, and delamination of the surface. Because of the risk which this poses for damaging the polyethylene(More)
Degenerative joint disease is known to occur in patients with a history of polio. However, minimal or absent quadriceps function is generally considered to be a contraindication to total knee arthroplasty. We describe an elderly patient with quadriceps paralysis secondary to poliomyelitis who underwent a successful total knee replacement for severe(More)
