Abstract

Severe arthritis of the elbow was historically managed with resection or interposition arthroplasty. Dee was the first to report the use of total elbow arthroplasty in the English literature [1]. The fixedhinge design was fully constrained and transferred stress directly to the prosthetic interface resulting in high rates of aseptic loosening and early failures. A greater understanding of elbow anatomy and kinematics has led to advances in prosthetic design and surgical technique.
