Summary of "Long-term outcomes of total elbow arthroplasty for distal humeral fracture: results from a prior randomized clinical trial."

Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is a reliable treatment for elderly patients with comminuted intra-articular distal humeral fractures. However, the longevity and long-term complications associated with this procedure are unknown. The objectives of this study were to examine long-term outcomes and implant survival in elderly patients undergoing TEA for fracture.

Evaluation of Functional Outcome of Elbows after Resection Arthroplasty of Failed Total Elbow Replacement.

Recovery of elbow function is a challenging problem following resection arthroplasty after failure of total elbow prosthesis. The objective of this study is to evaluate long term functional outcome in...

Salvage reverse total shoulder arthroplasty for failed operative treatment of proximal humeral fractures in patients younger than 60 years: long-term results.

Long-Term Results of Total Knee Arthroplasty with Contemporary Distal Femoral Replacement.

Distal femoral replacement (DFR) is a salvage option for complex primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Although excellent immediate fixation and weight-bearing are achieved, there is a p...

Anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty with an inlay glenoid component: clinical outcomes and return to activity.

Biomechanical studies show that inlay glenoid components in total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) can reduce edge loading and opposite-edge lift-off forces with humeral translation compared with onlay gle...

Proximal humeral osteolysis and glenoid radiolucent lines in an anatomic shoulder arthroplasty: a comparison of a ceramic and a metal humeral head component.

Elbow Hemiarthroplasty Versus Total Elbow Arthroplasty for Irreparable Distal Humeral Fractures

Distal humeral fractures can be difficult to treat, in particular when the joint surface is affected (intra-articular fractures). If rigid internal fixation with plates and screws can be o...

Can Secondary Total Elbow Arthroplasty After Failed Internal Fixation or Non-operative Treatment of Distal Humeral Fractures Achieve Equal Results as Primary Arthroplasty?

Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) results in immediate pain release with good functional results after distal humerus fractures. But still open reduction and internal fixation is recommended ...

Elbow Hemiarthroplasty Versus ORIF for Distal Humeral Fractures

This is a randomized control trial comparing the outcome of ORIF (open reduction and internal fixation) with EHA (elbow hemiarthroplasty) for distal humeral fractures in patients aged 50 y...

Polyaxial Locking Plates in Treating Distal Humeral Fractures

Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty Versus Hemiarthroplasty for Displaced 3- and 4-part Proximal Humeral Fractures

Proximal humeral fractures are common injuries with the highest incidence being amongst the elderly. Most proximal humeral fractures are nondisplaced or minimally displaced. The majority o...

Compression of the ULNAR NERVE in the cubital tunnel, which is formed by the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, humeral-ulnar aponeurosis, and medial ligaments of the elbow. This condition may follow trauma or occur in association with processes which produce nerve enlargement or narrowing of the canal. Manifestations include elbow pain and PARESTHESIA radiating distally, weakness of ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and loss of sensation over the hypothenar region, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger.
