What would cause a full elbow replacement to constantly be leaking fluid?

In brief: Infection

If an elbow replacement is leaking fluid through a hole in the skin you most likely have an infection.
This is very serious and requires urgent surgery including possibly removing the prosthesis to cure the infection.
