Assessment of a painful or stiff shoulder arthroplasty can be challenging. The cause of pain can sometimes be easily identified. However, some patients have normal levels of inflammatory markers, normal plain films, and no clinical signs to indicate a diagnosis. Indolent organisms may not raise blood marker levels or result in obvious radiologic findings such as loosening. We report the utility of performing arthroscopy in these patients for a diagnostic advantage.
