Elbow replacement for acute distal humeral fractures

Abstract

Distal humeral fractures are rare in adults but often very difficult to treat because of poor bone quality and intra-articolar comminution; fixation may results in failure. For these reasons, elbow replacement is becoming a more popular solution.

The aim of this paper is to analyze the clinical and functional results and the complication rate of the patients treated in our orthopaedic department with elbow replacement (Total Elbow Arthroplasty and Distal Humeral Hemiarthroplasty) of distal humeral fracture.
