Case Study
The article presents a case study of a ten-year-old boy having arthritis of the hip that was treated with débridement and open irrigation through the on-call service. The patient had a history of diminishing capability to walk for five days before presentation. It says that he underwent the said treatments, and that pulse lavage was used during the operation. The use of lavage resulted to intramuscular and subfascial air due to lack of communication between on-call and accepting services.
