About these proceedings


Endoprosthetic replacement of the elbow is an operation which is still rarely undertaken. It is indicated in chronic polyarthritic conditions and joint damage due to trauma. A considerable number of different prostheses are commercially available. In this unique collection of papers, the authors discuss methods, implantation techniques, and surgical results and complications. Particular emphasis has been placed on the complications related to the prostheses and surgical revision. In addition, alternative techniques are presented.
