A pyogenic, ruptured Baker's cyst induced by arthroscopic pressure pump irrigation

, : A pyogenic, ruptured Baker's cyst induced by arthroscopic pressure pump irrigation. Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy 17(3): 266-269

Post-steroid septic arthritis can be treated with irrigation pump assisted arthroscopic synovectomy. The high-intra-articular fluid pressures can force the pyogenic fluid into a pre-existing Baker's cyst. The cyst can rupture and with the pre-existing steroid induced immune-suppression, the calf abscess will be hard to control. Therefore, thorough investigation with an ultrasound-guided aspiration followed by an early drainage of the collection is warranted and mandatory. Close monitoring for the development of a deep thrombosis of the popliteal vein is required.
