1/4. Successful joint arthroplasty following proteus morganii (morganella morganii) septic arthritis: a four-year study.

    proteus morganii (morganella morganii) is an uncommon cause of septic arthritis. We describe a 53-year-old woman with severely deforming rheumatoid arthritis, who developed an indolent septic arthritis secondary to infection with this organism. She was treated with antibiotics and closed drainage, and subsequently, underwent successful arthroplasty. She continues to do well 4.5 years later. This patient's disease course shows that gram-negative septic arthritis, effectively treated, does not preclude successful total joint arthroplasty.

2/4. Infections of the temporomandibular joint.

    Three interesting case histories of infection of the temperomandibular joint are reported. An unsuccessful search of the recent literature was made in the hope that some assistance would be obtained in understanding the pathology. These infections must have been more common in the pre-antibiotic era and perhaps a search of the older literature would have been more fruitful.

3/4. The use of the Papineau bone-grafting technique in salvage of the infected total joint implant.

    The development of osteomyelitis after first metatarsophalangeal total implant-arthroplasty can be a complication encountered by any foot surgeon. The postoperative course is often long with a guarded to poor prognosis. The authors present a salvage procedure for this surgical complication utilizing aggressive surgical debridement followed by an autogenous bone graft. The technique, as described by Papineau, was developed to shorten hospitalization time and reduce deformity. A case presentation is given to illustrate the successful use of this procedure in the treatment of postoperative osteomyelitis of the foot without systemic antibiotics.

4/4. Fast diagnosis (6h) of clinically silent pyonephrosis by combined use of 99mTc-MDP and 67Ga citrate.

    A fast diagnosis (6h) of clinically latent pyonephrosis by combined use of 99mTc-MDP and 67Ga-citrate is reported. This technique combines the potential early detection of focal infectious processes by 67Ga and the "high-pulse" separation possibility of multiple isotopes. A brief prospective study (6 months) showed the interest of this technique: in six cases focal bone and/or joint infections were found three of which were absolutely latent clinically.
