Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 47-year old man with arthropathy on his left elbow. It states that the patient maintained 4 grams (g) of Haeocompletan human fibrinogen (HS) for many years; however, his elbow remained symptomatic until he was 46 years old. The patient had undergone a total elbow arthroplasty by employing semi constrained Coonrad-Morrey prosthesis in 2006. The patient was satisfied with the surgery and was able to do his daily activities two years after the operation.

    Background. Late-onset chronic (low-grade) periprosthetic joint infections are often accompanied by unspecific symptoms, false-negative cultures or nonspecific low values of serum biomarkers. This may lead to the unintended implantation of a revision prosthesis into an infected surgical site...
