Abstract

The article describes a unique case of a patient in whom two hip and two knee joints were replaced, describes the complications that have arisen and presents the ways to solve them.
Recently, due to the global aging trend of the population, environmental problems, there has been an increase in diseases of the musculoskeletal system, especially large joints. One of the effective methods of treating this pathology is endoprosthetics operations, the number of which is steadily growing from year to year and, according to K. Lee et al., by 2030 it will approach 3 million [1].
The most widespread is total hip and knee arthroplasty, which allows to eliminate pain syndrome, restore sufficient range of motion in the joint and return the patient to a normal life [2,3]. Having received a good result after the first surgery, some patients try to get rid of pain syndrome, stiffness in other joints, persistently subjecting themselves to subsequent surgeries for arthroplasty of the affected joints.
