Publish Date: May 9, 2016

UA 59 years old lady presented with pain and instability of both knees. Patient got both knee replaced in 2009 at some other centre. Patient developed infection of the left side knee which required revision total knee arthroplasty. Managing Infected Total Knee Replacement is a challenge and very few centres in India are managing these cases. We at our centre follow 2 stage protocol for treatment of these case. In 1st stage the implants are removed and thorough debridement is done to clear of all the infection and antibiotic spacer are put for 3 months to clear the residual infection. In 2nd Stage the antibiotic spacer are removed and revision Total Knee Implants are put. Patient can walk from 2nd post op day after this surgery. After surgery our patient is comfortable and walking independently. There are no signs of residual infection. This patient underwent Left Total Knee Replacement with special implant (Rotating Hinge Knee). With this special implant we have relieved her of pain as well as given her a good range of movement of the knee.
