Case 1: Prior revision for glenosphere dissociation. Clinically excellent result for 4 years. Dislocated shoulder while extending arm 3 months prior to revision and desired revision because of persistent pain. Surgical findings benign except for mild poly wear. Pre revision x-ray below.
Case 2: Prior hemiarthroplasty for anchor arthropathy. Initial clinical result for 1 year. Recurrent pain thought to be due to prominent suture anchors. Surgical findings benign except for prominent anchors. Pre revision x-ray below.
Comment: These cases again illustrate that cultures for Propionibacterium are not infrequently strongly positive even though there is low clinical suspicion for infection.
