Question (1 Hour)
A 79 year old non insulin dependent diabetic (Type II) lady fell at home and on arrival at the Accident and Emergency Department 12 hours later was dehydrated and mildly confused. Her right hip had been replaced 13 years previously and she lived independently prior to the fall. Her relatives reported that her short term memory was deteriorating and that she had experienced several unexplained falls recently.
On examination she was in pain with an irregularly irregular pulse of 100 beats per minute, blood pressure of 95/60 and a temperature of 37.50. There was erythema over her sacrum, right medial malleolus and heels. Her urine was cloudy and pungent. The femoral fracture depicted in the radiograph was her only significant musculoskeletal injury.
It is agreed that revision arthroplasty is felt to be appropriate.
