Snapping pes syndrome is rarely seen after total knee arthroplasty which can be confused as periprosthetic joint infection. In our case report; after the exclusion of the possible pathologies, we performed dynamic ultrasound for detection of snapping. After the confirmation, we chose a different treatment modality other than the only case report in the literature which suggests the revision of the components. We preferred a minor approach without arthrotomy by the excision of the ostophyte and tenotomy made by different incision than the index surgery. The patients complaints and pain have been improved dramatically after the time of surgery.
