Early Post Operative Septic Arthritis After Hip Arthroscopy Using Tisseel Fibrin Sealant: Report of Two Cases
MetadataShow full item record
We present two cases of septic arthritis of the hip joint after arthroscopic intervention where both patients were treated with fibrin sealant in association with acetabular micro fracture procedures. Both patients presented with aggressive early onset symptoms, atypical for standard post-operative wound infections. We have now reduced use of Tisseel Fibrin Sealant within the context of hip arthroscopy procedures for concern regarding risk of infection.
