The Norway Elbow System

  • F. Risung
Conference paper


The Norway elbow is a long-stemmed, unconstrained elbow prosthesis, produced in four different humeral sizes and three different ulnar sizes for the right and left sides. All sizes have an identical joint part, which permits full interchangeability of humeral and ulnar components (Fig. 1).
