Elbow Joint Denervation
Articular denervation was a subject of interest in treating painful pathologies of different body joints, especially in non-weight-bearing joints. Good knowledge about articular neuroanatomy is needed to perform denervation procedures effectively. Elbow denervation can be done in a large number of pathologies in young active patients who have a good or restorable range of motion. But little literature supporting elbow denervation is present. In this chapter, we provide a full description of the articular innervation of the elbow and the surgical techniques for performing partial and total elbow denervation.
