Currently, elbow arthroplasty is used to treat elbow joint fracture, tumor, arthritis, and many other elbow-related diseases. However, due to the characteristics of the elbow joint, the success rate of elbow arthroplasty is lower than knee arthroplasty. The most common complication of this surgery is prosthesis infection and loosening. The focus of this case is on prosthesis infection after the elbow arthroplasty surgery.
