Infected Hip and Knee Replacements: Red Flags and Examination Techniques

Join Professor Oliver Pearce, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, as he demonstrates key points to look out for while examining the hip and knee, followed by a look at the rise of hip and knee replacement infections in the UK. In the first half of the evening, Mr Pearce will discuss the most common diagnoses of abnormal findings during examination of the hip and knee, with the key findings to look out for. Conditions to be included are: hip and knee arthritis, trochanteric bursitis, gluteal tendonitis and tears, meniscal tears, ACL rupture, chondromalacia patellae and patellar dislocation.
For the second half of the evening, Mr Pearce will move to looking at infected joint replacements. At present in the UK, 190 000 total hip and knee replacements are performed per year, meaning many will be seen by the Allied Health Professional post-operatively. With infection rates around 1%, the likelihood of encountering early infection is on the rise. This half of the evening will cover the red flags to look out for, as well as explanations, images and rationale for treatments.
