Spontaneous Recurrent Hemarthrosis Post Total Knee Arthroplasty Treated with Selective Embolization – A Case Report and Review of Literature.



Spontaneous recurrent hemarthrosis of the knee following a total knee arthroplasty is a rare complication with varying time of onset from 2 months to 18 years.

We present a case of spontaneous recurrent hemarthrosis presenting at 3 months following a total knee arthroplasty with a follow-up to 1 year.
