A case for one-stage revision in infected total knee arthroplasty?
Summary of "A case for one-stage revision in infected total knee arthroplasty?"
Infection in total knee replacement is a rare but devastating complication. The current literature tends to support a two-stage revision as definitive treatment of established deep infection. Despite the fact that single stage revision is a well recognised treatment for the infected hip replacement, it has not gained the same level of support in the knee. This article reviews the literature of two-stage and single stage revision and reports the senior author's experience with the latter.

Arthroplasty, Replacement, Knee
Replacement of the knee joint.
Partial or total replacement of a joint.
A genus of tapeworm, containing several species, found as adults in birds and mammals. The larvae or cysticercoid stage develop in invertebrates. Human infection has been reported and is probably acquired from eating inadequately cooked meat of animals infected with the second larval stage known as the tetrahythridium.
Arthroplasty, Replacement, Finger
Partial or total replacement of one or more FINGERS, or a FINGER JOINT.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
PURPOSE: Two-stage revision represents the gold standard in the treatment of infected total knee arthroplasty. Different techniques have been proposed, mostly not preserving range of motion. An articu...
We present a case of a patient with preoperative cutaneous candidiasis, who developed candidal infection during stage revision knee arthroplasty. The patient received intravenous fluconazole for 6 wee...
PURPOSE: Two-stage revision is the 'gold standard' treatment for infected total knee replacement. Single-stage revision has been successful in the hip and, in carefully chosen knee revisions, may offe...
INTRODUCTION: Data on long-time survival and clinical function of rotating hinge knee prostheses used in revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are scarce. METHOD: We evaluate the outcome of 42 revisi...
BACKGROUND: Some indications for revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA), e.g. arthrofibrosis, have been identified to yield inferior results. The aim of this study was to analyse the results of revisi...
Long term follow-up is needed to determine whether current Mobile Bearing revision Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) designs will improve implant longevity. The potential advantages of mobile...
The investigators hypothesise that cementless one-stage exchange revision surgery can be performed in patients with chronically infected hip replacement with substantial benefits for the p...
Metaphyseal sleeves, through their design, could allow reconstruction of the knee in cases of severe bone loss by allowing rigid internal fixation and proper alignment of the extremity and...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate long-term clinical and radiographic data between geometrically identical GVF and cross-linked polyethylene-bearing inserts in total knee arthroplas...
Computer Aided Surgery in total knee arthroplasty improves knee stability and functional outcomes more than conventional total knee arthroplasty.
