Polyarticular Sepsis Originating from a Prior Total Ankle Replacement

As more primary total ankle arthroplasty procedures are being performed, an increased awareness of potential complications is needed. One such complication is a deep periprosthetic infection which, if left untreated, can quickly evolve into a limb-threatening infection. In rare instances the infection can propagate into a polyarticular joint sepsis and become life threatening.
