Modern Me-thods of Infectious Knee Joint Arthritis Treatment

Abstract


New approach to the treatment of patients with infectious knee joint arthritis using arthroscopic technique has been elaborated at CITO department of sports and ballet injury. During the period from 2004 to 2010 total number of 23 patients (32 - 67 years) has been treated. Use of arthroscopic technique enabled to improve treatments results and to decrease the duration of hospitalization. The importance of early diagnosis and timely initiation of treatment has been shown. Delay of arthroscopic revision and knee joint sanitation may result in destructive changes in cartilage and other joint components. Evaluation of treatment results by Lysholm scale showed 28.6% of good and 71.4% of satisfactory outcomes.
