Infection after Arthroscopic Cuff Tear Repair (Case Report)

Septic shoulder arthritis following arthroscopic surgery is a rare complication, according to the literature it arises from 0.006% to 2,1% of cases. We report on a case of 58 y.o. patient, admitted to our setting 10 days after arthroscopic intervention on the right shoulder joint in another hospital. Based on clinical, laboratory and instrumental assessment septic shoulder arthritis was diagnosed. Arthroscopic lavage and debridement surgery with bioabsorbable antibacterial agent implantation was performed. Long term follow-up in 6 months showed good results with full range of motion, absence of pain and elimination of infection.
