Started in 2014 for a very common shoulder shoulder surgery,HemiCAP on the left shoulder by Dr. Steinnman of Rochester.
2-7-15 right shoulder HemiCAP done. Day of surgery right shoulder swelled with blood and puss oozing from sutures. Came home sick and after a couple days had to go to local hospital for emergency surgery. Over a liter of puss removed and had to do a resection arthroplasty and spacer.
Cultures from time grew E.coli as well as Propionibacterium acnes. Treated 6 weeks with IV antibotic. On2-19-16 had C.diff infection. Reimplantation was complicated by hematoma requiring debridement on 2-21-16.
Developed recurrent infection leading to an irrigation an debridement on 3-21-16. Developed a recurrent infection leading to irrigation and debridement of the reverse total shoulder arthroplasty on 4-13-2016. This time, the cultures were again polymicrobial with anerobic organism including Finegoldia magna Actinomyces neuii, and Anaerococcuc octavius. Needed to be treated with six-week course of IV antibiotic therapy with ceftriaxone and cefadroxil FOR LIFE!
Going ahead with left shoulder repacement LOCALLY. Right shoulder now functioning at 60%.
