A rare complication following Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty treated by arthroscopy: A case report

Author(s): Karaca Sinan, Erdem Mehmet Nuri, Sirikci Murat
Abstract: Cement extrusion at Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty (UKA) procedure, into the anterolateral compartment of the knee is rare. Complications after a UKA procedure, such as bearing dislocations, polyethylene wear, aseptic loosening and progressive arthritis have been reported. We would like to report a case of cement extrusion into the anterolateral compartment on a patient with UKA. With the direct arthroscopic visualization method this complication was treated successfully. When cementing the prosthesis, it is important to take attention to remove extruded cement, visualize all parts of the knee and wash the surgical area to prevent this complication during UKA.
