Scheduled to have resection of revised right hip on 2/8/18 due to staphylococcus caprae infection. Initial implant done in 2011, revised 2013 after staph caprae identified as the cause of pain being experienced. Only the stem left in place, PICC line, oral antibiotics. 2017- pain returned, hip aspirations grew same infection(staph caprae). Having an articulated spacer (procedure #3 on right hip) in February 2018 with PICC line , antibiotics again. If successful, will have another replacement installed 3 months later. Cannot find much information about how this infection occurred or possible recourse. Not looking forward to the initial days post op.
