The study is a prospective case controlled clinical trial. The purpose of the study is to investigate the effect of elbow arthroscopy in the treatment for osteoarthritis of the elbow when compared to conservative treatment.
Patients will be recruited at departments of hand surgery and orthopedic surgery outpatient clinics. The control group will be patients to whom the conservative treatment continues. Patients who meet the inclusion criteria will be asked to participate and sign the informed consent. Therefore the investigators have two treatment groups: group 1 who receives an elbow joint debridement arthroscopically without physiotherapy and group 2 who receives only conservative treatment with physiotherapy.
