Chondrolysis - cases continue to be recognized

Since our publication of June 2013 in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery on chondrolysis, we have received communications regarding a wide variety of related cases. An interesting one relates to a young person having arthroscopic Bankart two years ago at which time an intra-articular pain pump was used. Within the first year after surgery the patient had worsening pain and range of motion with clinical and radiographic confirmation of chondrolysis. At the time of revision surgery, a retained intra-articular catheter was found in the joint. A shoulder arthroplasty is planned.
