Arthroscopic Resection of the Radial Head
Radial head fractures often require excision in the acute or chronic setting. Elbow arthroscopy is useful for removal of comminuted fragments in acute isolated radial head fractures. Similarly, arthroscopic resection of a malunited and incongruous radial head is a minimally invasive method for management of chronic radiocapitellar pathology. Arthroscopy provides access for evaluation and concurrent treatment of any associated intra-articular pathology and may also be used to retrieve any fixation implants from the radial head and capitellum [1, 2].
